  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Peel potatoes (if desired) and place in large sauce pot and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil and reduce to simmer, cooking for 30-35 minutes or until potatoes are tender-soft.
  2. Meanwhile, in skillet over medium-high heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter and cook onion for 10-12 minutes or until soft and translucent. Drain potatoes thoroughly and place in large bowl with remaining butter, salt and pepper. With mixer or potato masher, blend potatoes and butter until mixed while retaining a slightly chunky texture. Fold in cooked onion, eggs, ham and chives.
  3. Line baking sheet with parchment or lightly grease. In ring mold or biscuit cutter, sprinkle bottom interior with bread crumbs and fill mold with potato mixture until top is slightly rounded, topping again with bread crumbs. Remove ring and repeat with remaining potato mixture, spacing cakes about 1 inch apart. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until tops are golden brown and beginning to crisp. Top with Parmesan cheese and serve hot.


  • Chef's Tip:
  • Go the extra mile and make homemade bread crumbs! Use a nice rustic bread, olive oil and even some garlic and fresh herbs for additional flavor. Save any extra in an airtight container for future use.

The recipe left out ingredients such as the potatoes & the onions.

Everyone loved it. I put the ham and other ingredients in the food processor and added more eggs and also used panko instead of bread crumbs
