Well, Christmas day has come and gone. This year I was cooking for 8 people – us and both sets of grandparents. Afraid I wouldn’t have enough food for everyone I ended up cooking far too many vegetables. Yesterday morning I was faced with a rather large bowl of mashed potatoes, some Christmas ham and a little turkey (a 9lb turkey shared between 8 people doesn’t leave you with much leftovers!) so when the kids got up they had only one thing on their minds for breakfast – Potato Cakes (or spud cakes as they are known as in our house) so I decided to be a little different and incorporate the turkey and ham into the potato mixture. Here’s how I got on…
Quantities are approximate as I just used what I had but should be ok
1lb cold mashed potatoes
Few slices of turkey and ham
- In a food processor, finely chop your turkey and ham. Then add your mashed potato and flour and mix until it is all combined.
- Shape small amounts of the mash into small potato cakes
- Heat a little oil on a frying pan then fry til golden brown.
- Serve hot and enjoy!
