Meadowfield Farm Goat’s Cheese Potato Cakes
This version of Deruny, or Ukranian Potato Pancakes, uses goat’s cheese to add beautiful sour notes to the umami flavours of the original potato cakes. You’ll want to use a soft cheese – but not too soft – with a robust flavour. Meadowfield goat’s cheese is perfect for this!
1 Preheat oven to 180C/160C/gas mark 5. Blitz the potato and onion in a food processor. Squeeze out as much moisture as possible over a colander and pat the mixture dry with some kitchen paper to make sure the mix is as dry as it can get.
2 Mix in the egg, Meadowfield Farm soft goat’s cheese and flour, then season with salt and pepper. Heat the vegetable oil in medium pan over a medium heat.
3 Carefully drop in large dessert spoonful of the mixture into the pan and fry the potato cakes for 2 minutes on each side. Place in the oven for 10 minutes to finish cooking before you are ready to serve.
