Tasty Treat Thursday

August 30, 2012

Today, I'm linking up with Mallorie HERE for "Tasty Treat Thursday"

I don't normally cook, and I didn't actually make these, but I did find the recipe via Pinterest and the hubs whipped them up in no time.

HERE is the link to the original recipe

Corn and feta potato cakes
(we didn't have any corn)
Makes around 5 potato cakes

100g plain flour
1/2tsp baking powder
1/2tsp garlic granules
Black pepper
120ml semi-skimmed milk
200g potato, boiled and cooled
1 small onion, finely diced
140g feta cheese, well crumbled
100g sweetcorn kernels
20g butter

Combine the flour with the baking powder and garlic granules, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Whisk in the milk a little at a time until the mixture is free of lumps.

Coarsely grate the cooked potato, or roughly mash it with a fork. Add the potato to the batter, along with the diced onion, crumbled feta, and corn kernels.

Melt a little butter in a frying pan, and add the mixture in dollops, each about the size of 2 tablespoons. Press each dollop down into a patty. Cover the pan with a lid (or another frying pan if you don't have a lid), and cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes. Use a spatula to carefully loosen them from the pan every few minutes to ensure they don't stick. After 5 minutes, uncover the pan, and turn the heat up a little. Continue to cook until the underside of each patty is nicely browned. Flip them over, and cook for a further five minutes, until the other side is also browned. Serve warm.

The only thing we did different was used mixed veggies in place of the corn because that is all we had.  They were still delicious though!
