Loaded Mashed Potato Cakes are a fun and easy snack or appetizer that takes all the flavors you love in loaded mashed potatoes and puts them into a hand-held snack!
Not just any old mashed potatoes, but Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes! This is my second recipe to partner with them on and you guys… this recipe is incredible!
Did you catch my first recipe with them – Macaroni and Cheese Stuffed Meatloaf? Yeah, it’s as decadent as it sounds.
I’m totally guilty of taking a container of Bob Evans Original Mashed Potatoes and eating it straight from the tub… cold. I’m so embarrassed to admit that, but it’s true! Potatoes are my weakness, and I love how creamy and delicious these ones are!
One of my favorite things to do with these potatoes is to turn them into other amazing recipes. Think of it as a shortcut in the kitchen that makes your life easier!
All you have to do is combine all the fixin’s for a creamy loaded mashed potato into a bowl and stir them together, then just form the potatoes into little discs (this is a step that’s perfect for the kids!).
This recipe only calls for 1 egg, and I know that you’re looking at that picture above saying to yourself, “That Shawn is crazy, there are definitely two eggs there.”
You guys! I have backyard chickens… I grabbed one of their eggs for this recipe and it had TWO egg yolks in it!! I always think about those double yolk eggs and wonder how two baby chicks could possibly fit inside that tiny shell…
Anyways, once your discs of loaded mashed potatoes formed you’ll coat them with breadcrumbs and then pan fry them until golden crisp.
The only thing left to do is dip, scoop or dunk them in some sour cream (ranch dressing is a game changer) and enjoy!
You’re going to love these fluffy, crispy, loaded cheesy bites of goodness!
