2 large potatoes, peeled and boiled
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 green onions, finely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup breadcrumbs
Oil for frying


Prepare the Potato Mixture: In a large bowl, mash the boiled potatoes until smooth. Add the shredded cheddar cheese, chopped green onions, chopped parsley, salt, and pepper. Mix well to combine.
Form the Potato Cakes: Take a portion of the potato mixture and shape it into a small patty, about 1/2 inch thick. Repeat with the remaining mixture to form more potato cakes.
Coat the Potato Cakes: Place the flour, beaten eggs, and breadcrumbs into three separate shallow bowls. Dip each potato cake first into the flour, shaking off any excess, then into the beaten eggs, and finally into the breadcrumbs, ensuring they are evenly coated.
Fry the Potato Cakes: In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully add the potato cakes in batches, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Fry for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy. Transfer the cooked potato cakes to a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.
Serve: Serve the stuffed potato cakes hot with your favorite dipping sauce or as a side dish alongside your favorite main course.
Enjoy: Enjoy these delicious Stuffed Potato Cakes as a tasty appetizer, snack, or accompaniment to any meal!
