Potato Cakes with Spinach and Parmesan

Dieser Beitrag ist auch verfügbar auf: Deutsch

In this post I will show you a new and vegetarian recipe for crispy potato cakes with spinach and parmesan.

These potato patties have been on my to-do list for months! Once I made them too, but didn’t have enough time to take nice photos of them. But now the perfect opportunity arose because I still had mashed potatoes from the day before. I come straight to the point: These wonderful potato cakes are made from homemade mashed potatoes (or from boiled potatoes from the day before, which are processed into mashed potatoes). Then there are fresh spinach and parmesan cheese as well as flour and breadcrumbs so that the meatballs do not fall apart in the pan and, secondly, they get nice and crispy.

Preparing the potato patties from puree ensures that the inside of the patties remains soft and creamy. The breading makes them wonderfully crispy on the outside. All in all, a wonderful feast for every occasion. If you can prepare several servings directly, you can bake the meatballs again in the oven the next day.
