If you’ve got some leftover mash potato, this is a very quick way to create a tasty dish with simple ingredients.
Cheese, onion and chorizo potato cakes
-1/2 onion (diced very finely)
-Handful grated cheese
-Couple of slices of chorizo (cut into very small pieces)
-1 Tbsp butter
- Mash the potato together with the onion, cheese and chorizo until you have a smooth and thick mixture.
- Form the mixture into small patties ready to fry (a pastry cutter can be useful to press the mixture into shape)
- Melt the butter in a frying pan over a fairly high heat, and add the potato cakes to the pan once the butter is foaming.
- Cook the potato cakes until each side is golden, and they have been heated through.
-You can modify the potato cakes to use up any leftovers you may have. Leftover fish transforms this recipe into great fishcakes!
-Top the potato cakes with a poached egg for a delicious quick lunch. (See our recipe on how to poach an egg by clicking here)
-These can be frozen and kept for a quick and easy dinner.
