Ingredients

For the Potato Cakes:

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Beef Filling:

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

For Cooking:

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil (for frying)

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Potatoes:
  • Peel and boil the potatoes until tender. Drain and mash them with butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Allow the mashed potatoes to cool slightly, then mix in the egg and flour until a dough forms. Set aside.
  1. Prepare the Beef Filling:
  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and cook for another minute until fragrant.
  • Add the ground beef to the skillet and cook until browned, breaking it up with a spatula.
  • Stir in the tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and paprika. Let the mixture simmer for about 10 minutes until thickened.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the shredded cheddar cheese. Allow the filling to cool slightly.
  1. Assemble the Potato Cakes:
  • Take a handful of the potato dough and flatten it into a small pancake in your hand.
  • Place a spoonful of the beef filling in the center of the pancake.
  • Fold the edges of the potato pancake over the filling and seal it to form a ball, then flatten it slightly to form a cake.
  • Repeat with the remaining dough and filling.
  1. Cook the Potato Cakes:
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Fry the potato cakes in batches, cooking each side until golden brown and crispy, about 3-4 minutes per side.
  • Transfer the cooked potato cakes to a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  1. Serve:
  • Serve the Cheesy Beef Stuffed Potato Cakes hot, garnished with chopped parsley or a dollop of sour cream if desired.
