  • Ready In

  1. Place the potatoes into a saucepan and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then simmer over medium heat until tender enough to pierce with a fork, about 10 minutes. Drain and mash potatoes, then set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the cabbage and carrot in another saucepan and add just enough water to barely cover the bottom of the pan. Cook over medium heat until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain off liquid and stir into the mashed potatoes along with the onion, mustard and Cheddar cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Shape the mixture into 4 patties. Heat a greased grill pan over medium-high heat. Place the patties on the pan and grill until heated through and golden brown, about 5 minutes on each side. Serve right away.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

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 (...

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 befor...

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...

These were pretty good. I used the cabbage mix and that worked well. I was guessing what a pound of potatoes looked like, and I think I was way off. I only used about 5 small/med. pottoes and ...

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!
