A tasty addition to any BBQ, lunch or the perfect side dish for dinner!


Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 800g Desiree Potatoes (peeled)
  • 2 Tbsp Plain Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 150g Leg Ham (chopped)
  • 1 Tbsp Finely chopped chives
  • 2 Eggs (Beaten)
  • 1/4 cup Vegetable oil
  • pinch Salt & Pepper

Method

  1. Grate potatoes. Place potato in a sieve over a large bowl. Using the back of a large spoon, press to drain excess liquid.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, ham and chives in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add egg and potato to flour mixture. Stir until well combined.
  3. Heat oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Spoon 2 tablespoons of mixture into pan. Flatten with a spatula. Repeat to make 4 cakes. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes each side or until golden. Transfer to a wire rack over a baking tray lined with paper towel. Repeat with remaining potato mixture.

Notes... Using a starchier variety of potato, such as the desiree, helps the lightly beaten eggs to bind these cakes.
