Potatoes can not only be baked, mashed, made into pies. The vegetable can become the basis for budget potato cakes, which are somewhat reminiscent of Ukrainian palyanytsya. The dish is based on a simple dough made with water and potato filling with cheese. These potato cakes are suitable for a snack and as an alternative to bread.

Food blogger Victoria (kelbas_v) shared a recipe for fried potato cakes with cheese on her Instagram page.
