Herbed Potato Patties

Lake Superior Kitchen, Potato Fritters

I haven’t been very active on here lately.  We’re in a busy season of life with jobs, kids, community, etc.  I have been trying to focus on what we value most and focus my time on those things.  I need to be present during our family time, invest in relationships, and get rest.  So, I’m still cooking every day, and even making new recipes, but I’m a little behind with photographing and documenting.  But, life has seasons.  This one is good-just requires different attention.  Thanks for your patience with me!  I made this recipe quite awhile ago now and am finally gettin around to sharing it!  It is so tasty and easy-you'll love it!

Herbed Potato Patties

1 hour, serves 6


7-8 small red potatoes

1/4 c olive oil plus some for frying

3/4 t salt

1/2 t garlic powder

1 t fresh thyme, minced

1 t fresh rosemary, minced


  1. Fill large pot with 2 1/2-3 quarts of water.  Add the potatoes and bring the water to a boil.
  2. Boil the potatoes until they are soft enough to break with a fork, about 20 minutes.
  3. Strain the water from the potatoes and move the potatoes to a large mixing bowl.
  4. Add the olive oil to the potatoes and mash until smooth.
  5. Add the salt, garlic powder, thyme, and rosemary and stir until well combined.
  6. Heat additional olive oil in a large nonstick skillet.  Scoop a small amount of the potatoes, shape it into a patty, and place gently on the skillet.  After several minutes, once the fritter has browned slightly, flip to the other side and fry for several more minutes.
