Bill got to chose this month's recipe, so, courtesy of Bill, here's our recipe for Irish Potato Cakes...
IRISH POTATO CAKES (a great way to use leftover mashed potatoes)
2 c. flour
4 t. baking powder
1 t. salt (Mrs. Dash)
3 T. butter
1 t. caraway seed
2 c. shredded/mashed cooked potatoes (or instant mashed, following box directions)
¾ c. milk
Chopped green pepper
Mix dry ingredients, blend in butter; add caraway seed, mashed potatoes and lastly, the milk. To shape, you can pat into 4” ‘cakes’, or roll out ½ to ¾ in. thick and cut with biscuit cutter or cut into squares with knife. Brown slowly in small amount of oil in heavy skillet or on griddle. Serve hot. Makes 15 – 18 cakes.
