In the Mood for Herby Potato Cake

Mmmmm, crispy comforting potato cake….. I can’t tell you how much I love this herby potato cake. Made with grated potato, onions, garlic, herbs and delicious cheese it’s perfect when you need something comforting, filling and yet light and hip happy. That’s right, happy hips from a potato cake!

There are three secrets to a good potato cake.

  1. The type of potato – choose a waxy or all purpose potato so it stays together and doesn’t go mushy.
  2. The ingredients – potatoes are quite bland so go for big flavoured additions such as onions, garlic and robust herbs such as rosemary and thyme.
  3. Removing the moisture. Once you’ve grated the potatoes, pile them into a clean dry tea towel, twist the top and squeeze, squeeze, squeeze. Best to do this over the sink!  This will make sure you get a lovely firm, unmushy potato cake that’s pillow soft on the inside and chip crispy on the outside. Oh……

This lovely dish is perfect for a meatless Monday, a picnic in the park, or part of a spread when you have people for lunch. Serve it with a big salad. Just so good.
