Crispy, tasty and delicious and very variable
Chicken, Quinoa and Apple Burgers
A day at the SHOMOS

The U3A cookery group came round today. We did 3 recipes this time, including this one, stuffed potato cake. 2 potato cakes is the recommended portion size. It isn’t many calories, but 2 really is enough

The recipe uses a potato dough and it has spiced vegetables inside, and then shallow fried. The vegetables are just everyday ones, but they taste very different served this way

Verdict

Crispy, tasty and delicious. These were lovely. We just tasted them on their own, as we were in a cookery group, everyone loved them.

Variations

These are infinitely variable. Change the spices, change the filling, even change the potato. We played with the flavouring today putting in truffle oil and pomegranate molasses. Use a different curry paste and it would be different. Try a Thai curry paste, or harrisa, horseradish or your own curry powders with whatever you have.

Change the filling to left over spag bol, prawns, chicken, corned beef, beetroot and feta, peanut butter, as before, whatever you have. You could change the potato to sweet potato, beetroot, carrot mash or swede too.

You could stuff these with baked beans, and serve with a poached egg and a rasher for a different full English type meal.

Serve with a green vegetable, a crispy salad, baked beans, bacon, poached egg or a chutney
