Potatoes are probably the most versatile food ever. You can make them into potato starch or potato flour to use in flour blends, make them into pierogi filling, or even cream of potato soup. Of course, there are the usual baked potatoes (my favorite way to make them is in their “jackets” right on the oven rack), French fries, potato chips, you name it.
I may be the only mother on the planet with a child who has never, ever liked French fries (really!), but everyone in my family can get on board with really creamy mashed potatoes. I often struggle with when to make my mashed potatoes, though, when they’re for a holiday and the kitchen is super busy.
These quick and easy potato cakes will have all the family members coming back for more. Just gather six simple ingredients for a tasty treat!
