Potato Cakes with Smoked Trout, Apple, and Horseradish Cream

Yield Makes about 1 dozen


  • 2 pounds baking potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Smoked Trout, Apple, and Horseradish Cream

How to Make It

  1. Cook potatoes in boiling salted water to cover 12 minutes or until tender. Drain potatoes, and transfer to a large bowl. Mash with a potato masher until smooth; stir in cream, butter, salt, and pepper. Let stand until cool enough to handle.

  2. Shape about 1/4 cup potato mixture into 1 1/2- to 2-inch patties. Brush patties with egg, and dredge in panko. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add potato cakes; cook, in batches, 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels, and top with Smoked Trout, Apple, and Horseradish Cream.
