I’ve always been a potato cake fan but never tried making them with mashed potatoes (as opposed to shredded potatoes) until now. What I love about this Smashed Potato Cakes with Kale recipe, aside from the taste, is how it can easily pass for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Or, even breakfast for dinner! Just fry up some eggs and bacon to go with it as well as whatever fresh fruit you have on hand, and you’ll have a crowd-pleasing meal.

Sounds like a good latke recipe to me, right in time for the upcoming holiday of Hanukkah!
how are these if need to reheat when served? need to make ahead of time!
You can reheat in a skillet, in the oven, or in a toaster oven.
I reheated them in the air fryer. Yum!
Everyone in my family loved these! My husband put a little sour cream on top, and I put a little salsa. Delicious and filling!
I would like to say thanks for sharing such delicious smashed potato cake recipe with organic ingredients. It awesome especially when cooked with Olive Oil.
GOD BLESS YOU
really nice recipe! And with ricotta, whole wheat too, thank you for this!
Do you think this would work with spinach? I’m not a big cook and kale sounds like a big persons word… but I do spinach (baby spinach) usually
Kale is just as easy as spinach, really :-) You can buy the leaves in a bag, pre-shredded and use it just the same as a bag of spinach leaves.
If you did substitute spinach, it tends to leak water so the mixture might end up wetter than if you had used kale, but I think it would still be fine.
Would love to use the blender with my 9 year old to get her to be involved with cooking. Making fruit and veggie smoothies would get her excited about eating healthy.
We can’t do dairy at our house-might try this with non-dairy cheese or maybe a little more egg?! Sounds delicious though!
Let us know how it turns out. :)
Could use a waffle iron and swap out the veggies!! Yum.
These look delicious! Years ago I used to make something similar using tuna.
I love vegetable fritters for breakfast, and this sounds like a stick-to-the-ribs version of them. Will try soon. It would be a good way to use up leftover potatoes….
