Hi.

Welcome!  Here is where you can find when and where I am teaching and cooking, or maybe sometimes, what is on my mind. Hope you have a nice stay!

Potato and Kale Pancakes

Potato and Kale Pancakes

Let me start by saying, this is not a health food item. This is comfort food at it's finest! We could pretend that they are a little healthy because they have kale in them.....

This is a great way to use up the leftover mashed potatoes from your Thanksgiving dinner, or a good little something to make and put in the freezer for those nights when you don't want to cook.

 Leftover kale and potatoes make something lovely!

POTATO AND KALE CAKES

2 cups leftover mashed potatoes ( or just cooled)

2/3 cup kale ( steamed or roasted) leftovers are great

1/4 cup flour

1/4 cup cream

1 egg

Pepper to taste

Salt if needed ( depends on your potatoes and kale salt level)

Butter, olive oil, or coconut oil for frying

ย 

Mash everything together . I like to use my hands to make sure all the bits of potato get broken up and everything is well mixed! 

Heat one tablespoon of oil in a skillet. Scoop large, or small dollops of batter into the hot pan. smash into a pancake. Let cook on med heat for 1-2 minutes, until the bottom side is golden. Flip cakes, cook 2-3 min more. Serve with Chunky Romesco, maple syrup, sour cream, apple sauce โ€ฆthe list goes on and on! 

These can be made in a large batch. They store and reheat very nicely. They can even be frozen and reheated directly out of the freezer! Just add a little time to your reheating period. 

If made ahead of time. Heat in oven at 375 for 10 -15 min.

 Lovely golden color!
