Potato Cakes are a strange idea that works so well.  They can be served with so many other ingredients such as smoked salmon and soft boiled eggs.  Also Bacon and poached eggs are a close run second; but the list goes on and on.  You can always use left over mashed potatoes as I do. You can of course just add sour cream for a refreshing light snack. I have started serving these at brunch for the children and they are loving them. Serve with crispy bacon for a happy family. If you are going to serve with a sauce or runny eggs, they are best fried until crispy.

  • Boil the potatoes in salted water until tender.
  • Drain well and grate on the coarse side of a cheese grater into a mixing bowl.
  • Add the spring onions, seasoning, flour and half the butter and mix very well.
  • Divide into 4 equal portions and pat into flat discs. Chill in the fridge overnight.
  • Heat a frying pan over a moderate heat and add the rest of the butter.
  • Gently fry the potato cakes, 2 at a time, for 2 to 3 minutes each side until light brown and heated through. Keep warm.
  • Sprinkle over the chives. Season well.
  • Add drop of Hollandaise Sauce - May sound weird but it works.
