YUMMY POTATO SCALLION & KALE CAKES

WELCOME TO FOODIE FRIDAY!

My family has always been huge fans of mashed potatoes. How about yours? Potatoes have a good amount of potassium, Vitamin C, B-6 and protein. They also contain carbohydrates....but as the saying goes, "everything in moderation."

I'm always searching for ideas for leftovers and potatoes are at the top of my list. The recipe that I have used enables you to use leftovers or from scratch potatoes. I love the fact that the creator adds Kale for that super nutritious benefit of fiber.

I followed the creator of the recipes instructions: (recipe link below)

1. Boil until tender 2 medium potatoes (Yukon gold)
2. Mash or rice them adding butter, buttermilk, salt and pepper to taste.
Let cool.



Heat oils in pan. Scoop some of the batter using a cookie scoop. This makes the cakes a nice manageable size. ***My cakes were a bit mis-shapen. They contained a bit too much liquid making them a little tough to make into a patty.

Cook until brown and flip to do the same on the other side. Serve warm.


These tasty cakes make a nice side dish with dinner, but would be great with just about anything! The crispy outside and the tasty inside.....yummy!  The kids won't even know there is "good for you" Kale inside!!
