Oven Baked Cheesy Mashed Potato Cakes

I have to say that this recipe was a total and utter fluke! It came about completely by accident (like all the best recipes do!). I had a bowl of leftover mashed potato from the night before’s dinner and thought I’d try and turn it into some oven baked cheesy mashed potato cakes. BEST IDEA EVER!!!

Oven Baked Cheesy Mashed Potato Cakes I’d seen similar recipes on Pinterest before, but they all involved frying the potato cakes in a pan. I’m not the hugest fan of frying food PLUS I seriously don’t have time to stand over a frying pan making sure they don’t burn!! (I’m pretty much spending 99.99% of my time chasing after Will who is into EVERYTHING at the moment!!!).

And so I decided that I would coat my mashed potato cakes in panko crumbs so that they would have a beautiful crispy coating after they’d been baked. Plus, these only need a little spray of olive oil so they’re way healthier! And can I just tell you… these are seriously the BEST!!! Yep, the BEEEEESTTTT!! (To be honest, I’d actually made these thinking that they’d be great for Will, but I ended up gobbling down more than my fair share…pretty darn quickly indeed!).

    Lucy can these be frozen?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Tracey, they sure can!! They tend to dry out a little bit when you reheat them, but they’re still delicious!

  2. Alex says:

    Could you freeze these before oven baking?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Alex, I’ve only ever frozen them after baking. You could try though!!
