My daughter had found this simple recipe on TikTok and I knew we had to share it. Its a simple recipe with only 2 ingredients – yes potato starch is only made from potatoes. And its super delicious and perfect for a side dish, breakfast or snack time.

And HI this recipe is perfect for leftover mash potatoes this holiday season, so make sure you save this post! You can customize them and add any filling that gets you going like sauteed spinach and feta cheese – YES – or sauteed mushrooms.

  • 2 lbs gold potatoes, peeled

  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 oz fontina cheese, cubed small (or mozzarella)
  • olive oil

  • Bring a pot of water to a boil. Slice the peeled potatoes into small chunks. Once the water is boiling add in the taters and salt the water with 1 tsp salt. Bring back to a boil and then set your timer for about 10 minutes or until your potatoes are tender and mashable.
  • Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl and use a fork to mash them mostly smooth. Add in the potato starch and salt and pepper. Combine using your clean hands, to 'push' the starch into the potatoes, until a smooth dough forms.
  • Form about 1/4 cup size balls and flatten them out as best you can. Add 2-3 small cubes of your cheese to the center and close them up. Now, gently flatten this out into a disc. Repeat.
  • Add a drizzle of olive oil to your pan and heat on medium high. Add in the potato cakes and cook about 3-4 minutes per side. Lower heat if they start cook too quickly. Enjoy!
