These oven Baked Potato Pancakes are another guilt free comfort food that are great for a snack or serve as a side dish with salad and grilled food. After I shared the Potato Chicken Stew recipe, I still have leftovers of potatoes, onion and broccoli to make these potato pancakes. These Baked Potato Pancakes are tender, a little cheesy and fragrant. Most of the potato pancake recipes that you find online are usually pan fried but I chose to bake them in the oven for a healthier version rather than adding more oil to pan fry them. I find it is much easier and cleaner to shape out the pancake with a plastic mooncake plunger rather than using your hands or spoon to shape them. Not messy and the pancakes came out nice and round. It only takes about 15 minutes to bake the potato pancakes in a fan force oven but will take about 30 minutes in a conventional oven.
You can keep any leftover baked potatoes in the chiller for a few days and warm them up in the toaster oven for about 10 minutes at 180 degrees C before consuming or even grab to go.
