Ingredients:

For the Potato Cakes:

  • 4 large russet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions (optional)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs (plain or seasoned)

For the Beef Filling:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

For the Potato Cakes:

  1. Place the peeled and chopped potatoes in a large pot of salted water. Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  2. Drain the cooked potatoes and return them to the pot. Add the milk and butter to the pot and mash the potatoes until smooth and creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Stir in the shredded cheddar cheese and chopped green onions, if using, until well combined.

For the Beef Filling:

  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic, and sauté until softened and fragrant, about 3-4 minutes.
  2. Add the ground beef to the skillet and cook, breaking it apart with a spoon, until browned and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Stir in the chili powder, paprika, salt, and pepper, and cook for another minute to allow the flavors to meld. Remove from heat and set aside.

Assembling the Potato Cakes:

  1. Take a small portion of the mashed potato mixture and flatten it in the palm of your hand.
  2. Place a spoonful of the beef filling in the center of the potato round.
  3. Fold the edges of the potato round over the filling, shaping it into a patty or cake.
  4. Repeat the process with the remaining mashed potato mixture and beef filling until all the potato cakes are formed.

Cooking the Potato Cakes:

  1. Preheat a large skillet over medium heat and add a drizzle of olive oil.
  2. Dip each potato cake in the flour, then the beaten eggs, and finally the breadcrumbs, coating evenly.
  3. Place the coated potato cakes in the skillet and cook until golden brown and crispy on both sides, about 3-4 minutes per side.
  4. Remove the potato cakes from the skillet and drain on paper towels to remove excess oil.
  5. Serve the cheesy beef stuffed potato cakes hot, garnished with additional chopped green onions or your favorite toppings, such as sour cream or salsa.

Enjoy the deliciousness of these Cheesy Beef Stuffed Potato Cakes, perfect for a hearty meal or as a crowd-pleasing appetizer!
