These ham mashed potato cakes are the most amazing way to use leftover mashed potatoes. They are incredibly cheesy and make for a delicious snack or appetizer!


These are best made with mashed potatoes which are not super creamy or have too much butter in them. If thats the kind of mashed potatoes you have on hand, increase the amount of flour to make sure the patties hold their shape. And I absolutely do not recommend making these with instant mashed potatoes ? never works.

If you are looking for a great mashed potato recipe my Instant Mashed Potatoes are incredible and they work perfectly well with this recipe!

  • 4 cups mashed potatoes
  • 1 Jalapeno, deseeded and chopped finely
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, finely minced
  • 4 slices of Ham, finely chopped
  • ½ cup plain Bread Crumbs (for coating)
  • 2 cups shredded Mozzarella
  • 1 Egg
  • ¼ cup Flour
  • 4-6 tablespoons Oil for shallow frying
  • Sour Cream or Mayonnaise for serving
  1. In a large bowl, mix together mashed potatoes, mozzarella, egg, flour, jalapeno, garlic and ham till combined. The mixture should be thick and should hold its shape. If its too loose, add a tablespoon of a flour at a time (this will depend on the consistency of your mashed potatoes)
  2. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop out the mixture and form it into patties which are about ⅓ inches in thickness. Coat each cake evenly in a thin coating of breadcrumbs and set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a pan and fry the patties in a single layer on each side for 3-4 minutes till golden brown on both sides.
  4. Serve hot with sour cream or mayonnaise.
