Cheddar Potato Latkes

Cheddar Potato Latkes
20 Min

We love hash browns. If it were up to us, we'd make sure we had a hash brown recipe at every meal! Well, we could just make plenty of Cheddar Potato Latkes, and we'd be all set. Adding some Cheddar cheese to a potato recipe really just makes for one of our all-time favorite combinations. It's comfort food at its finest... and we just can't get enough!

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups refrigerated shredded hash browns
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup (about 1-1/2 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions (about 2)
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • Cooking spray

What to Do

  1. In a large bowl, combine hash browns, egg, cheese, scallions, sour cream, and salt; mix well.
  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add oil, and swirl to coat pan.
  3. Drop potato mixture evenly into hot oil in batches. Cook 5 to 6 minutes on each side, or until golden; spray tops with cooking spray when turning over. Serve warm.


Serve up these potato pancakes as a side dish, snack, or appetizer - their cheesy flavor is sure to please even the pickiest eater. Use  applesauce and/or sour cream for traditional topping options.

Do these freeze well?

Hello! Yes, these potato cakes freeze well. If you know you're not going to eat them all at once, undercook them 1 to 2 minutes less. This will keep them from getting too brown after you freeze and reheat them. Hope this helps!

I don't have any luck with potato pancakes, but this recipe uses hash browns, so it should be a no fail recipe! I haven't seen refrigerated hash browns in the store, but I suppose I can use frozen ones and thaw them first. Wish me luck! )
