Potato Pancakes with Cream Cheese and Smoked Trout

Potato Pancakes are very close to a potato rosti, in fact the taste is so similar that for the non-foodie, it will be exactly the same.

Potato Pancakes are perfect for a quick supper or a scrumptious breakfast and can literally be served with everything, from smoked ham, a soft poached egg and hollandaise, fish or as in my house…….. cream cheese and maple syrup. What sparked my idea was this video I saw on Facebook where they stuff  the potato pancake with a piece of Camembert and it looked too delicious and gooey! My immediate thought was to make Potato Waffles stuffed with Camembert, but that recipe needs some tweaking still!

I love making rosti, if fact it was my first ever recipe I had on RSG many moons ago. You can choose to make one big one and serve wedges of it for breakfast or individual ones and serve it with a variety of toppings. There is just something about fried potatoes that people find really, really hard to resist.

Potato Pancakes are slightly softer in texture, because of the addition of egg and milk. I also added chopped spinach to make it seem slightly healthier, so the choices are yours.

Potato Pancakes with Cream Cheese and Smoked Trout

makes 12-14


350 g grated raw potatoes

1 egg

15 ml flour

10 ml garlic salt

80 ml milk

125 ml chopped spinach

black pepper to taste

oil for frying

250 ml cream cheese

200 g Threestreams Cold Smoked Trout Ribbons


Fill a your basin or plastic bowl with cold water  and grate the potatoes into the water. Rinse the grated potatoes to remove all starch. You now have two options. Either put the potatoes in your salad spinner and spin dry or dry the potatoes in a clean dry dish cloth. Place the potatoes in a bowl and add the egg, garlic, flour, milk and spinach. Mix thoroughly. Heat some oil in a pan, shape the potato with your hands and fry the potato pancakes until golden brown on both sides. Serve with a dollop of cream cheese, smoked trout and some greens.
