I'm so in love with this recipe for skillet potato cake recipe. It's cheesy and smooth and loaded with flavor. I could seriously forget the rest of the dinner and just dig a fork in my cast iron skillet and indulge.
If you read my blog you know one of my favorite things to use to make a quick weeknight potato recipe are Simply Potatoes. They are so good and totally make dinner time easier no peeling or cutting just bam right into the recipe! I have used them to make some of my favorite sides like tomato pie with a hash brown crust .
They area also great for breakfast recipes like my breakfast burritos. I make a huge batch and freeze them then they are ready to pull out for quick mornings on the run. Simply Potatoes are great for weekends as well when you have time to grill, try my grilled blue cheese potato salad with your favorite steak.
I love them because they are real potatoes not dried out flakes and they are fresh not frozen. However, if you are like me, and plan your meals something almost always puts a kink in them. You can just take these and put them in the freezer to save for later!
For this skillet potato cake I used their mashed potatoes and just a few more ingredients. The kids loved it and I had the left overs for breakfast the next morning it was perfect with eggs!
- 1 package simply potatoes mashed potatoes
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup green onions
- 2 slices bacon crumbled
- 1 1/2 cups shredded mexican cheese blend reserve 1/2 cup
- 1 cup panko bread crumbs reserve 1/2 cup
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
In a bowl mix together mashed potatoes, sour cream, green onions, bacon, 1 cup of mexican cheese, 1/2 up of panko bread crumbs, salt and pepper.
In a cast iron skillet heat 1 tablespoon olive oil on medium heat.
Sprinkle 1/2 cup of bread crumbs in bottom of pan
Spread your potato mixture evenly in pan and top with remaining cheese.
Cook for 15-20 minutes on your stove top till it's heated through and the center is set. It will start to pull away from the sides of the pan. OR you can put into a 350 degree oven instead of your stove top for the same amount of time.
