Easy Potato Corn Cake Recipe for the Whole Family

We love mashed potatoes. We can consume a few servings in one sitting! But when we have leftovers, we transform them into these Easy Cheesy Potato Corn Cakes.

What’s not to love about this hot and crispy treat? It’s so quick to make, full of nutrients, and completely customizable. Plus, it’s great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and even as an appetizer.

What potato is best for potato cakes?

Not all “mashed potatoes” are created equal. But the best ones start with the best potatoes. That’s why I use high-quality U.S. dehydrated (instant) potatoes.


Why U.S. dehydrated (instant) potatoes? 

  • Dehydrated potatoes are made from real potatoes, with the water removed.
  • Dehydrated potatoes in the U.S. are typically made from Russet, Red and Yellow potatoes that undergo a dehydration (removal of water) process to create premium dehydrated potato products, while retaining the texture and flavor of fresh natural potatoes after rehydration.
  • The products can be easily rehydrated by adding water and then most may be served immediately, though some products need to be cooked after rehydration. Dehydrated potato products, including potato dices, slices, shreds, flakes, granules and flour, are used in restaurants, delicatessens, coffee shops, institutions, bakeries, snack manufacturing, and in homes all over the world.
  • Dehydrated potato products deliver the flavor, nutrition and versatility of potatoes in a convenient package and can work as an ideal ingredient for everything from soups and salads to main dishes and desserts.
  • Potatoes – in all forms, including dehydrated – provide the carbohydrate, potassium, and energy you need to perform at your best. Because they are made from fresh potatoes, dehydrated potatoes deliver the same nutrients as fresh potatoes, (such as potassium, vitamin C and fiber).
  • One serving (100 grams) of mashed potatoes prepared using dehydrated potato flakes provides 113 calories, 15 grams of carbohydrate, 2.3 grams of fiber, 9.7 grams of vitamin C, and 233 milligrams of potassium.

Note: CHO refers to Carbohydrate and K+ refers to Potassium

Rehydration Instructions To Make Mashed Potatoes:


  • 500 grams U.S. Standard Potato Flakes
  • 700 ml Milk
  • 200 grams Butter
  • 16 grams Salt
  • 2,000 ml Water


  1. Combine water, salt and butter.
  2. Heat to a boil, remove from heat.
  3. Add cold milk, gently stir in potato flakes. DO NOT WHIP.
  4. More flakes can be used if a heavier texture is desired.

Easy Cheesy Potato Corn Cake Recipe:


  • 2 cups mashed potato
  • 1 can whole kernel corn (drained)
  • 1 and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese (grated)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon parsley (finely chopped)
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 3 cups vegetable oil (for deep frying)


  1. In large bowl, combine the mashed potato, corn, cheddar cheese, flour, parsley, salt and pepper.
  2. Form your desired patty shape and size.
  3. Dip each patty in the flour, then egg, and then breadcrumbs.
  4. Fry in pre-heated oil over medium heat until cakes are golden brown. Drain on paper towels
  5. Sprinkle with cheese and parsley. Serve hot with preferred dip.

Loaded Mashed Potato Cakes

This one I shared is just the basic recipe for leftover mashed potato cakes that my family loves to snack on. Here are some more variations you could make:

  • Pizza: Diced pepperoni, minced garlic and mozzarella cheese.
  • Ham and cheese: Diced ham, shredded Swiss cheese, and diced onion.
  • Bacon Ranch: ½ packet of ranch seasoning, chopped bacon, and cheddar cheese.

Did I pique your interest on U.S. dehydrated potatoes? You encourage you to try them! You can purchase them in major supermarkets nationwide. They are also offered by baking supply stores.

Other U.S. potato forms like fresh (table-stock) and frozen (fries) are available in groceries. Don’t forget them in your next grocery run!
