If there is one heaven sent food combination its, leeks and potatoes. This recipe is actually an updated version of a recipe I posted a while back and everyone that tries them cannot get enough of them. These mini leek and potato cakes are the perfect dish to bring to a party or event. They are great as appetizers or even as a side dish or snack.
Cook Time: 45 Minutes
Makes about 6 servings
All you need is:
1 pound of baby red potatoes cooked
1 leek cleaned and chopped
2 garlic cloves minced
1 handful of fresh chives chopped
1 handful of fresh parsley chopped
1-1/2 cups of panko bread crumbs *Read the labels, some brands contain dairy
2 tbs extra virgin olive oil plus more for cooking
1/3 a cup of sifted flour for binding - I have tried this recipe with virtually every flour known to man and I have gotten the best results with regular all purpose flour
salt and pepper to taste
Leeks are one of my favorite vegetable to cook with. They add amazing flavor to everything.
The mixture tastes delicious.
Make sure you read the labels of panko breadcrumbs very carefully. Some brands contain dairy.
I usually eat most of them before they cool down. Lol
