These cheesy Potato Pancakes are an amazing way to use up leftover mashed potatoes!
I’ve tried making something similar to this in the past to use up leftover gammon and mash but as amazing as they tasted, they definitely didn’t look as tasty as they could have done.
And then I saw a recipe for something similar which used flour to thicken the mix before cooking so I had a try making them with the added flour and they held their shape so much better when they were cooking. I also used more oil this time which isn’t my favourite way to cook but it definitely helped them crisp up better.
I just made sure to pop them on some kitchen paper to soak up as much grease and excess oils before I served them up. They didn’t taste greasy or oily so I’ll definitely cook them again this way next time.
I didn’t have any leftover shredded gammon this weekend (well, I did have but I used it in another recipe I wanted to try) so these are just cheesy potato cakes and I actually think I prefer them without the gammon.
