Salsa Potato Patties


  • 1-1/4 cups Hungry Jack® Mashed Potato Flakes
  • 1/3 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons minced cilantro or flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup chunky salsa, plus more for topping if desired
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. Combine potato flakes, cheese, flour, garlic salt, cilantro or parsley and baking powder in medium bowl. Mix well.
  2. Beat egg with fork in small bowl. Stir in milk and salsa. Add to potato mixture. Stir just until combined. Let stand 2 to 3 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. If potatoes need to be stiffer, stir in a few more potato flakes.
  3. Melt butter in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Drop potato mixture by 1/2 cupfuls into skillet. Spread each to form a 4-inch round. Cook 4 to 6 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Serve warm, topped with additional salsa and sour cream if desired.
