  • 2 cups mashed Idaho potatoes (prepared according to package directions using half of a 22 oz. bag frozen Idaho mashed potatoes)
  • 2 cups frozen corn kernels (thawed) or cooked corn cut off the ear
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup canola oil (for frying)



1 In a medium mixing bowl, combine potatoes, corn and egg; mix well with a spoon.

2 Place bread crumbs in a shallow bowl.

3 Using clean hands, form mixture into 1 1/2inch diameter patties; dip each pattie in bread crumbs, coating both sides.

4 Over medium heat, in a large non-stick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the canola oil until hot.

5 Fry the patties, a few at a time, for 2 minutes, or until golden brown on the bottom; flip and cook another 2 minutes on the second side.

6 (If flatter, more crispy cakes are desired, flatten cakes while cooking with a metal spatula).

7 Transfer finished cakes to a baking sheet and keep in a warm oven (200 degrees) until all cakes are cooked.

8 Transfer cakes to a serving platter and serve with salsa, if desired.
