Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 12 Minutes
Total Time: 27 Minutes

Ingredients:

2 cups cold Mashed Potatoes (use left-overs!)
¼ cup Parmesan Cheese
1 Extra Large Egg
1 Green Onion, sliced
3 TBSP Flour
½ cup Italian Bread Crumbs
2 TBSP Butter (plus more as needed)
2 TBSP Olive Oil (plus more as needed)

Directions:

• Add the mashed potatoes, Parmesan cheese, egg, and the green onions to a large bowl. Stir to combine.
• Add a tablespoon of flour and completely work it in. The mixture should not be too wet and should easily form a cake without sticking to your fingers. If it does not, add more flour, a tablespoon at a time. Be sure to thoroughly work in the flour between each addition.
• To form the potato cakes, use a medium-size ice cream scoop to scoop the mixture into your hands. Form the cake approximately ½” thick and 2″ around. Lightly coat the top and bottom with the bread crumbs.
• Heat 2 tablespoons of butter and 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a wide skillet over medium-high heat.
• When the oil and butter mixture is hot, carefully place the potato cakes in the pan, leaving about 2 inches in between each one. Do not crowd the pan. Gently press down on each Parmesan Potato Cake to flatten them out a little.
• After 3 to 4 minutes, check to see if the bottom of the Parmesan Potato Cakes are golden brown. If they are, go ahead and flip them over and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes or until browned. If the heat appears to be too high, turn it down to medium.
• Repeat until all the cakes are done, adding more butter and oil as needed.
• Serve hot.
• If desired, serve with a little sour cream and more green onions sprinkled on top!

Notes:

• These are best when eaten right away but will keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. To reheat, place them in the oven on 350° until heated through. If reheated in the microwave, the Crispy Parmesan Potato Cakes will be soggy.

• Be sure your butter and oil mixture is hot before you add the potato cakes or they will absorb too much oil. That said, you don’t want it blazing hot or they will burn almost immediately. Add additional butter or oil as needed, making sure to let it get hot again before adding more cakes.

• Cook one Crispy Parmesan Potato Cake by itself first, so you can adjust the heat, flour, and seasonings before possibly ruining a whole batch.

• When you coat the Parmesan Potato Cake with the bread crumbs, you do not want to dredge the whole thing. You just want a very light coating on the top and bottom, which helps it nice and crispy. You could substitute flour for this, but we like the extra crispiness of the bread crumbs!

• You can add other ingredients to these if you would like: crumbled bacon, a different kind of cheese, herbs, or finely diced peppers and onions would be wonderful additions.

• It will take several batches to cook all of these, so store the cooked potato cakes in the oven on warm. Lay a wire rack over a baking sheet to keep them up off the bottom, which helps the bottom stay crispy.
