Mini potato cakes (slimming world friendly)

Christmas is coming and I was trying to think of something to serve Slimming World pate and my Slimming World friendly smoked salmon pate (recipes coming soon) on as crackers are high in syns.

I came up with these and they worked well, you don't get a crunch like with a cracker obviously but  they are handy to have around, keep well in the fridge for a few days too so you could make them ahead of time.

You could make them with smash but this time I used mashed potato I had left over. the use of the egg yolks make the potato cakes taste really rich and creamy. You don't have to make them mini if you want to make them to serve as a side dish oh and they are really good with a full English (or Welsh) breakfast too.



Mini potato cakes.




Approximately 6 potatoes, peeled, boiled and mashed (or use smash)

2 egg yolks

salt and pepper




Simply mix everything well together and fry teaspoons of the mixture in a non stick frying pan with a little spray oil. Flatten them down slightly and fry until both sides are browned.



Syn free on extra easy and green

    1. You can freeze them for later use or you can whisk them and add to a mix with beaten eggs to make a light souffle type omelette.
