potato cakesPotatoes are a definite must-have when it comes to your food storage. They are a terrific addition to any breakfast in the form of hashbrowns, or in the form of potato dices they can be mixed in with other breakfast meals. You can eat potatoes for lunch and dinner as a side dish such as mashed potatoes or French fries, or you can serve up a baked potato or a potato cake as your main dish. A potato cake is pretty simple to make and very filling! They taste pretty good, and if you use our butter mashed potatoes it adds a delicious buttery taste to the potato cakes! To make these potato cakes, mix together in a bowl 1 cup of butter mashed potato flakes, ½ cup of water, 2 tablespoons of sour cream*, one egg*, and some pepper.

Grease a frying pan—either with a little butter or just some Pam Cooking Spray, and cook the patties on a medium-low heat until they start to brown. Then flip the patties and brown the other side.   [caption id="attachment_2654" align="alignleft" width="150"]make pancake style patties from the potato mixture make pancake style patties from the potato mixture[/caption] [caption id="attachment_2655" align="alignleft" width="150"]Brown and serve delicious Potato Cakes Brown and serve delicious Potato Cakes[/caption]           *If you would like to use our whole eggs powder and our sour cream powder , add 2 ½ tablespoons of the whole egg powder, use only 1 tablespoon of the sour cream powder, and pour in a whole cup of water instead of just ½ a cup.
