Potato and Feta Patties

I know these aren't the prettiest snacks in the world, but they sure are delicious. I love feta cheese and adore anything with potatoes (I'm a carbohydrate addict) so I found these patties to be absolutely perfect.

If you are looking for a great tasting, no-hassle appetizer or snack then this recipe is for you.

Enjoy and happy cooking :)

1 lb potatoes
1 small onion
3 tsp parsley
1 1/2 cups feta cheese
1 cup flour
2 eggs
1 tsp coriander
salt and pepper to taste
3 tsp olive oil

First, grate the potato and onion and mix them together into a bowl. Next, squeeze the water out of the potato and onion mix with your hands -- I squeezed a handful at a time and transferred the squeezed mixture into a second bowl.

Add the parsley, eggs, flour, cardamon and cheese. Season with salt and pepper and mix thoroughly. Do not add too much salt -- keep in mind that the feta cheese is pretty salty.

In a frying pan, heat the olive oil and add 1-2 large tablespoons of the batter at a time (make the batter into as neat a circle as you can). Heat each side for about 2 minutes until cooked through. Repeat with the rest of the batter, adding more olive oil if necessary.

Garnish with parsley.

Serves 8

  2. You have an absolutely gorgeous blog. I love the colors and this recipe looks yummy. In my opinion, everything is better with feta.

  4. Thank you so much :) Ragan at bloggerboutique designed it in no time -- she's super talented :)

    Joie de vivre -- I absolutely agree -- everything does taste better with feta - I could live on eating feta with tomatoes and cucumbers all day :)

  5. Oh, I think I'd have to top these with pepper jelly. I don't know why, just seems like it might be a yummy combo. I just made a tomato, orzo, basil and feta side dish that I make all the time. If you love feta (and carbs) come give it a try.

  6. Hi Deborah! I've actually never had pepper jelly before (to my knowledge) -- I'm intrigued though, its on my to-do list now :) Your orzo and feta side dish sounds absolutely delicious -- now I'm craving orzo and its 10:30 in the morning here! :) I love your site btw!
