Peanut Butter Potato Cakes

Delicious topped with peanut butter!

These gluten free, spicy peanut butter potato cakes are a great recipe if you’ve got some leftover mashed potatoes that you fancy turning into something tasty. This dish makes a particularly yummy breakfast. I do realise that quite a few of my recent recipes have involved peanut butter in some way or another and that would be because I can’t get enough of it these days. Whether creamy or crunchy I’m a big fan and it works well with so many different dishes. I like to make potato cakes with garlic and green onion mashed potatoes but it will work with your favourite mashed potatoes too.
