Leftover Mashed Potato Cakes {Vegan}

Author Veg Life Staff


  • 1 Cup Leftover mashed potatos
  • 1/2 Cup of Vegan Shredded Cheese such as mozzarella
  • 1/4 Cup Vegan Sour Cream plus more to garnish
  • 1/4 Cup Flour plus more to coat
  • 2 Tbl Almond Milk plus more to coat
  • OPTIONAL ALTERNATIVE: Instead of coating with almond milk you could create a flax "egg" mixture consisting of 1 Tbl Ground Flax Seed + 3 Tbl of Water allowed to sit in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. This creates a very gelatinous mixture and works great to coat items prior to breading.
  • 1 Tbl Parsley
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper
  • Panko Bread Crumbs
  • Soy Bacon-Flavored Bits
  • 2 Tbl Vegan Butter such as Earth Balance


  • Combine all ingredients (except bread crumbs and bacon bits). If mixture is too sticky, you can add a little more flour.
  • Form the mixture into patties and using a pastry brush, coat with almond milk. (We provide a flax "egg" coating alternative method above).
  • Immediately coat in bread crumbs.
  • In a saute pan over medium-high heat, melt the margarine and cook on each side until golden brown. About 3-5 minutes.
  • For best results, serve while hot and cread crumbs are crispy.
  • Top with vegan sour cream and "bacon" flavored bits.
  • Garnish with parsley, if desired.
