Cooking Time



  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • Handful of parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. To the mashed potatoes, add the garlic, parsley and salt and pepper.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a pan and heat on medium heat.
  3. Shape your potatoes into 8 patties and place in the hot oil.
  4. Once browned (about 5 minutes), flip the patties and cook for a further 5 minutes until browned on the other side.


So that you don't overcrowd your pan, cook the potato cakes in batches.
