Spinach, Garlic and Rosemary Griddlecakes

“Potato cakes never had it so good! With a mild background of spinach, the aromatic rosemary shines in this recipe while the sharp feta cheese adds a pleasing bite. You may make these cakes without the feta and Parmesan for a non-dairy version. Use an equivalent amount of egg substitute as the binding ingredient instead of eggs.

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.

  5. Combine the sautéed vegetables, cooked potatoes, feta cheese, Parmesan cheese, egg, oregano, salt, pepper, and bread crumbs in a large bowl and mix well.
  6. Using an 8-ounce scoop as a measure, form the mixture into 10 griddlecakes.
  7. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large sauté pan.
  8. Sauté the griddlecakes until golden brown on both sides, about 2 minutes per side.
