Potato Cake
November 27, 2009

If you omitted the cheese you would have my grand mother's recipe, except she called them potato pancakes. She fried her's in bacon drippings and it gave them great flavor. I make mine with the cheese but I like to mix it in. I also use granulated garlic(1/2 teaspoon) and a pinch of cayenne. Sometimes I'll do them by the teaspoon so that they make little mini cakes and serve them as an appetizer. You can do a lot of variations with this recipe. Omit the garlic, add 1/2 cup bacon bits and 1/4 cup finely chopped chives, serve with a dollop of sour cream and you have baked potato cakes. Or you can use a different cheese, or herbs. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
