Baked Mashed Potato Cakes

16 Sep

My boyfriend and I ate lunch at Stockholders, a restaurant in Weymouth, MA and had their potato cake appetizer. It was amazing. While I didn’t have the meat debris or horseradish, I did have bacon and made a quick side dish version. My boyfriend ate almost all of them. The only thing I might add would be sour cream or Greek yogurt (plain with some garlic chopped in it) to dollop on top.

What you need:

1 package of instant mashed potatoes

2 slices of bacon, chopped

1/2 cup of panko breadcrumbs

1/2 cup of shredded cheese (any variety) + some for sprinkling

1 scallion chopped (optional)

1 garlic clove, minced (optional)

1 tablespoon of butter

nonstick cooking spray

black pepper

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Make mashed potatoes according to directions. Melt butter into the potatoes. Sprinkle in the pepper, cheese, bacon and scallion. I used a 6- muffin tin, put a piece of foil over the top and outlined the circles to keep the cakes in place. Spray with nonstick spray. Form the mashed potatoes into cakes and press into panko breadcrumbs (both sides). The bag of potatoes I had made 6 perfect sized cakes. Bake for about 15 minutes until the panko starts to brown and then sprinkle with additional cheese.

They came right off the pan! Serve warm. C’est si yum!
