Directions

  1. NOTE: USE "IDAHO SPUDS" BRAND INSTANT MASHED POTATOES FOR BEST RESULTS (THEIR POTATOES HAVE A BETTER TEXTURE AND FRESHER FLAVOR). IF YOU PLAN ON USING ANY OTHER SEASONINGS IN PLACE OF Recipe #453973 -- USE SPARINGLY TO AVOID OVER-SALTING (TASTE THE DRY MIX UNTIL SEASONING IS WELL-BALANCED). FOR LARGER POTATO CAKES, PREPARE 4 PATTIES INSTEAD OF 6. THESE MAY BE SERVED WITH A SMALL DOLLOP OF LIGHT SOUR CREAM.
  2. INTO a medium mixing bowl, add the potato flakes, baking powder, chives, Recipe #453973, and onion powder; MIX until combined.
  3. POUR one cup water to a small microwave-safe bowl; ADD the butter and heat in a microwave oven until butter is completely melted, but water is not boiling.
  4. REMOVE water/butter mixture from microwave and stir in the sour cream.
  5. WHEN the sour cream is blended in, whisk in the beaten eggs until smooth.
  6. POUR the water/dairy mixture over the potato mixture in medium bowl.
  7. STIR mixture with a fork until just blended (do not over-stir!).
  8. ALLOW mixture to sit for 5 minutes; DIVIDE mixture into 6 equal portions; SHAPE into patties without over-handling or pressing (they don't have to look perfect).
  9. FRY in a little oil or butter over medium heat until golden brown and crisp on both sides.
  10. SERVE and enjoy!
