Ham Hash Cakes Revisited

Carole's Chatter: Ham Hash Cakes

I made these ham hash cakes as a way of using up some ham on the bone while not tasting too hammy, if you know what I mean.  Glazed ham on the bone is fantastic but after a few days you need to come up with ways to use the ham that aren't just ham sandwiches or ham and salad.

I cooked the vegetables especially for this dish but it would also be a great way to use up any leftover roast vegetables you had.  Anything that will mash could be included.


2 cooked mashed potatoes
1 cooked mashed carrot
4 cloves of garlic cooked in the same water
¼ an onion, finely diced and fried off till just soft
¼ cup finely diced ham
1 teaspoon mustard powder (Hot English)
¼ cup breadcrumbs
1 egg
Salt and pepper

Mix all this together and form into little cakes with moist hands.  Fry in oil/butter til golden and then pop them into a moderate oven to finish for 15 minutes (you will need a longer time if you are starting with cold mashed vegetables).


  1. This sounds like a delightful dish!! Thanks for sharing it with your blog readers.

  2. Ah, like potato cakes....which I love. Great idea.
