My family served a lot of potato cakes as I was growing up. Just like me, they always made sure to cream enough potatoes so they could make the cakes the next day. While I get adventuresome and add all sorts of things to mine, Mama and my Grandmothers just kept them plain and simple.
I love a good salmon patty and decided to try adding a can of salmon to my potato cakes. They were delicious and a great combination together.

Potato Cakes with Salmon

1 large egg
1/4 C. all purpose flour
1/2 C. shredded cheddar cheese

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl until well combined. Heat enough oil to cover the bottom of a skillet. Drop by spoonfuls into the skillet and fry, over med. high heat, until golden brown on both side (about 4-5 minutes per side).
