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 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:

  1. Hi Caroline, you asked on my blog about how I got the polka dot effect on the letters in my LOVE card, well actually they are part of the design of the stamp so I didn't have to do anything at all! It's a stamp made by an American company called Studio G, a few UK online stores sell them and they often turn up on ebay and etsy
