Mock Whitebait Patties


These simple potato patties are nothing at all like whitebait unless maybe you sprinkle in a few poppy seeds for eyes!

Prep Time: 30 mins


1 egg, beaten

2½ Tbsp Edmonds standard flour

2 Tbsp milk

3 Tbsp grated cheese

salt and pepper

1 potato, peeled and grated

1 tsp Edmonds baking powder

3 Tbsp oil


1. Add the flour, milk, cheese and seasonings to the beaten egg and set aside for 10 minutes.

2. Add the grated potato to the batter with the baking powder just before you cook the patties. 

3. Heat the oil in a heavy-based frying pan and drop in tablespoonfuls of the mixture.

4. Cook for 5 minutes on each side until golden, drain on paper towels and serve hot, or keep warm in the oven at 160ºC for up to 20 minutes.
