Absolutely loved this one! I did use cole slaw mix instead of the cabbage and carrot...kept everything else the same. They were so tasty. I got 6 decent sized patties out of the mixture. Served with turkey kielbasa and a salad. Will make again...thanks Sanzoe!!
Unlike other reviewers, I didn't think there was anything really great about this. My potato patties held together just fine, but the flavor wasn't much better than just using leftover mashed potatoes and browning them. And that would be with a lot less effort than what was put into shredding cabbage and cheese, grating a carrot, and mincing an onion. Won't be making this again; sorry, it's just too ordinary in my opinion.
I really liked the flavor of this, but I had too much trouble trying to get them to stick together as patties. The second time I made it I decided to just make it as casserole and it worked out great! I made it exactly the same way but instead of frying it as a patty I put in in a casserole dish and put grated cheddar over the top. 15 minutes at 350 and it was ready to go. My husband says "great leftovers!".
The patties didn't really hold together, but it was definitely tasty! We ate them all with sour cream.
ETA: I have now made this a few times and I've done better at getting them to stick together. It helps if you don't make the mashed potatoes too wet before mixing it all together. These are quite tasty! DH loves them.
These are great! I've never heard of them, but encountered the recipe when I *met* sanzoe on the RE and was intrigued by them. I cheated (I'm kind of lazy) and used left over mashed potatoes (made w/just 1% milk and a tad of butter), bagged coleslaw mix, and pre shredded 2% cheddar. Since I'm a cheater, i had to *guesstimate* the amounts (esp since Mr. LTH got home from work early and helped himself to some of the potatoes I'd set aside!). I also realized I was out of onion, so I added a couple of dashes of minced/dried. I had no problem forming the patties...the only problem I had was my impatience in waiting for them to cook...I kept flipping them early, resulting in not the most attractive looking patties. I made mine first and made them in a non stick pan sprayed w/Pam. I do NOT recommend this! Mine had a very *off* taste to them. I then made Mr. LTH's in the same pan, coated w/a bit of butter and they were FABULOUS! I also added a couple of dashes of crushed red pepper for a little heat. TY for a great recipe, sanzoe!!
I thought this was really good! I tripled the recipe to take to a pot luck, and it was well-received. I followed the recipe almost exactly, except I sauteed the onions in a little butter before mixing them into the rest. I did cook it differently, as suggested by another reviewer -- I spread the veggies into a 9 X 13 dish and topped them with the cheese, then cooked it at 375 for about 30 minutes (until it was warm and bubbly). The food was almost room temperature by the time I did this, though, since I'd made it an hour or so before I needed it to go in the oven. I will make this again, but will probably try it as the patties next time. I will add more Dijon, too -- it was there but not strong enough for my taste. Leftovers are apparently pretty good, since my husband just ate them for breakfast with lots of Tabasco and some sunny-side-up eggs! :)
Delicious! This is a "keeper". Similar to potato pancakes but, with another layer of flavor from the cabbage & carrot. We enjoyed topped with sour cream & dill. I am part Scottish and have never had Scottish food before. Thank you, Sanzoe, for sharing the recipe.
These patties are great. I added a splash or two of red pepper flakes to add the ZIP I like! Fabulous! Low calorie, easy, delicious! What more can one ask for!
