    Potato Cakes
  • Red Ale Aioli
  • Garnishes


PEI Potato Cakes Recipe:

Before beginning, prepare the mayonnaise and red ale aioli along with garnishes so everything is ready before you begin cooking the potato cakes

Combine the mashed potatoes with the eggs, green onions, garlic, cheese, and flour all in a bowl and mix until everything is incorporated but do not overmix.

Once combined, if you can shape a ball of the batter and flatten it lightly without it sticking to your hands, it is at the right consistency

Add enough oil to a pan, enough to submerge half of the potato cake when you put one in.

Heat the burner to medium-high heat and once the oil is nice and hot, carefully take about 2 Tbsp of batter at a time and flatten and lay in the oil to cook

Cook for about 1-2 minutes until nice and golden brown and flip the cake carefully and cook on the other side for about the same time

Lift each cake out of the oil and set on a wire rack to let the excess oil drip off

These are now ready to serve so you can prepare your plate and garnishes

Red Ale Aioli Recipe:

For this red ale aioli, we are actually going to make mayonnaise from scratch and combine the remaining ingredients to create this delicious sauce that is very complimentary to potatoes.

To begin, crack the egg into a bowl and whisk for about 30 seconds

Add the mustard, red wine vinegar, and salt and then whisk until combined

You can have someone hold the bowl for you or, alternatively, roll up a wet towel under the bowl so it stays still while you mix

Once the bowl is table, carefully whisk the mixture slowly and start pouring in the oil just a few drips at a time and gradually increase the amount as it becomes incorporated

The sauce is emulsifying as you add the oil so it will thicken as you continue to add oil

Once everything is in, add the lemon juice and adjust seasoning and you should have a nice thick mayonnaise

Once the mayonnaise is prepared, you can now finish the red ale aioli:

With the mayonnaise, add in the paprika, garlic, red ale, and lemon juice and whisk until incorporated

Adjust seasoning and place in fridge until ready to serve

Once your aioli is made, garnishes are prepared, and potato cakes are cooked and hot, you are ready to assemble! Simply place the cakes on a plate or platter and add about 1 tsp of the aioli on top and garnish with any combination of the garnishes you wish! Serve while hot.

Chef Tip:

These PEI potato cakes are a great appetizer for an afternoon or evening after serving mashed potatoes for dinner. These are made from those cooled mashed potatoes and are very easy to make and are complimentary to any dinner party or just an evening in.
