    Serves: 4 

    • 450g potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
    • 180g cabbage, finely chopped
    • 1 carrot, grated
    • 1 onion, finely chopped
    • 1 teaspoon English mustard
    • 55g mature Cheddar cheese, grated
    • salt and pepper to taste

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:35min  ›  Ready in:1hour10min 

    1. Place the potatoes into a saucepan and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to the boil, then simmer over medium heat until tender enough to pierce with a fork, about 10 minutes. Drain and mash potatoes, then set aside.
    2. Meanwhile, combine the cabbage and carrot in another saucepan and add just enough water to barely cover the bottom of the pan. Cook over medium heat until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain off liquid and stir into the mashed potatoes along with the onion, mustard and Cheddar cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
    3. Shape the mixture into 4 flattened patties. Heat a greased grill pan over medium-high heat. Place the rounds on the pan and grill until heated through and golden brown, about 5 minutes on each side. Serve immediately.


    You can also pan fry the cakes in a bit of butter or oil.

    Absolutely loved this one! I did use cole slaw mix instead of the cabbage and carrot...kept everything else the same. They were so tasty. I got 6 decent sized patties out of the mixture. Served with turkey kielbasa and a salad. Will make again...thanks Sanzoe!!  -  15 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I really liked the flavor of this, but I had too much trouble trying to get them to stick together as patties. The second time I made it I decided to just make it as casserole and it worked out great! I made it exactly the same way but instead of frying it as a patty I put in in a casserole dish and put grated cheddar over the top. 15 minutes at 350 and it was ready to go. My husband says "great leftovers!".  -  11 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The patties didn't really hold together, but it was definitely tasty! We ate them all with sour cream. ETA: I have now made this a few times and I've done better at getting them to stick together. It helps if you don't make the mashed potatoes too wet before mixing it all together. These are quite tasty! DH loves them.  -  07 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
