How to Cook Potato Cakes

One of my favorite things for breakfast is potato cakes.

They remind me of my mother’s cooking with all of their golden deliciousness.

Check out the recipe below to find out how to make potato cakes with a few tips & tricks along the way!

Type: Breakfast Recipe
Serve With: Plain Balkan Style Yogurt with fresh herbs or top with sour cream
Prep Time: 8 min
Cook Time: 10 min
Yield: 6 large potato cakes


  • 4 cups mashed potatoes – Leftover mashed potatoes work perfectly!
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups bread crumbs – Cracker or chip crumbs work well too.
  • 3 tbsp fresh parsley or chives – Finely chopped
  • freshly cracked black pepper – To taste (hold off on salt if you are using cracker or chip crumbs)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  1. Preheat a large non-stick frying pan with 2 tbsp olive oil on medium heat.
  2. In a mixing bowl, evenly combine all remaining ingredients and knead together.
  3. Form potato cake patties and place gently into frying pan.
  4. Pan fry on each side until golden brown – approximately 10 min @ 5 min per side.
  5. Serve topped with Balkan Style Plain Yogurt or sour cream & fresh herbs for garnish.
