Apple and Cheese Potato Cakes
I've been trying to use my Spiralizer once a week as my wedding is now only just over four and a half months away (!) but as I started following Dietplan.co.uk this week I'd forgotten I also needed to factor in a spiralized meal - I also forgot to include my Meat Free Monday!
If you have any Spiralizer recipes please add them to the linky below - I will do a roundup of the recipes that were sent in this month further down.
So as it's Spiralizer Saturday I found a recipe from Inspiralized to have for my lunch today. They are quite similar to something I ate a lot in Germany when I lived there nearly 20 years ago - potato cakes or Kartoffelpuffer. I had a go at making these and blogging about it a couple of years ago. That was pre-Spiralizer so the potato was grated; it works very well with a Spiralizer. This recipe has the addition of apple and cheese, which is quite nice.
To make two large potato cakes:
Spiralize one large potato and fry the noodles in a pan for about ten minutes until softened.
Spiralize an apple and grate 75g cheese. In a large bowl, beat one egg, add the apple, cheese and a large pinch of salt. Add the spiralized potatoes to the bowl and mix well.
Shape into two balls, press down in the frying pan and fry for 5 minutes on each side. I served these with a couple of rashers of streaky bacon.
I'm now going to open the #SpiralizerSaturday for a month rather than doing it weekly, for the best spiralizer recipes - send in your ideas for things to make with a spiralizer!
Here's a roundup of the Spiralizer recipes I have made and other people have shared with me during January:
