Ham Cake-ettes Recipe


Tasty ham and potato patties with green onion and Dijon mustard are rolled into panko bread crumbs and fried until golden brown. The delicious little cakes are a great way to use up post-holiday leftovers.


  • 1 cup finely chopped cooked ham
  • 1 ½ cups cold mashed potatoes
  • 3 eaches green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon dried dill weed
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 ½ cups panko bread crumbs, divided
  • ½ cup vegetable oil for frying, or as needed


  1. Mix ham, mashed potatoes, green onions, egg, Dijon mustard, dill weed, salt, black pepper, and 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs together in a bowl until thoroughly combined. If mixture is too moist to hold together, mix in an additional 1/4 cup of crumbs.
  2. Place remaining panko crumbs into a shallow bowl.
  3. Scoop about 1/3 cup of the mixture and form into a ball; slightly flatten into a patty. Press both sides of patty into the panko crumbs; tap off any loose crumbs. Repeat with remaining mixture.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat until very hot; pan-fry 2 or 3 patties at a time in the hot oil until golden brown on each side, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
