A Quick and Easy Lamb Stuffed Potato Cakes

These lamb stuffed potato cakes are simple and delicious making a great appetizer for the upcoming festivities.

With this week sandwiched in-between Christmas and New Years using up left overs is still a necessity.

Potato cakes are an easy go to when you have left over mashed potatoes. Not to mention they are super easy to put together and make a really good appetizer. These were made using all left overs from the fridge from the mashed potatoes to the Aioli dip.

Stuffing potato Cakes

Potato cakes are really good on their own. Like fluffy savory pancakes, but stuffing them with meat, cheese or veg adds that extra kick of flavor.

I decided to stuff mine with some left over lamb from Christmas. It was fork tender so easy to mince and throw in.

No Left Overs No Problem

These can me made all year round. Whip up some mashed potatoes however you like them and follow the instructions.

The filling can vary as mentioned above. Make these vegetarian with any favorite vegetable, or fill them with Cheese.

Storing Left Over Cakes

These keep well in an airtight container for up to 4 days. I personally have never had to freeze these so unfortunately I’m unaware of freezing times.

I doubt these will last long enough to consider this! Your guests will love them!

I hope you have a fantastic New Year’s Eve and a better 2021 to come! We all Deserve it!
