I happy to admit that I have a slight addiction to Pinterest and regularly spend waaaaaay too much time browsing through recipes and other fun posts when I should be doing other important things e.g tackling the growing washing pile in our laundry. It’s certainly not all bad, as if it wasn’t for Pinterest I wouldn’t have come up with the idea for these Baked Potato Cakes.
These little delights are the perfect way to ‘pretty up’ your regular old mashed potatoes and I think they are special enough to even serve on their own as finger food at a party. I decided to fill my baked potato cakes with two of my favourite savoury ingredients – bacon and parmesan cheese. If you wanted to be extra tricky, you could add some grated zucchini, carrot or even corn and I don’t think the kids would be any the wiser.
I made these Baked Potato Cakes as a side to an easy Sunday night dinner of defrosted sausages and beans – yep we sure are fancy eaters in our house! This recipe made twelve Baked Potato Cakes and we ended up eating 7 of them so I have put the remaining five into a ziplock bag and into the freezer.
What kind of meals do you have for Sunday night dinner?
