Irish potato cakes recipe

Ingredients for sour cream sauce

1/2 cup low-fat sour cream
2 tablespoons chopped green onions (about 2 onions)
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
Few drops hot pepper sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Pinch cayenne pepper

Ingredients for Irish potato pancakes

1-1/4 pounds yellow flesh potatoes, peeled and cut into 1″ pieces (about 4 medium potatoes)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup grated mild Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup sliced green onions (about 4 onions)
1/2 cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
4 tablespoons vegetable oil


To make sour cream sauce: In mixing bowl, gently whisk together all sauce ingredients. Refrigerate.

To make Irish potato cakes: In medium saucepan cook potatoes in 2 inches boiling water, covered, 12 to 15 minutes or until tender. Drain, then shake potatoes over low heat 1 to 2 minutes to dry thoroughly.

With electric hand mixer or potato masher, mash potatoes until smooth. Beat in butter, milk and garlic until blended. Season with salt and pepper. Allow potatoes to cool; mix in cheese and green onions.

To form potato cakes, shape 1/2-cup portions of potato mixture into patties; coat on all sides with bread crumbs. Place on wax paper-lined baking sheet and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
