  • 1/2 small head cabbage chopped
  • 1 small white onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 4 potatoes peeled and chopped, add water to boil
  • 2 Tbs milk
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs, original
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbs parsley flakes 1/2 in potato pattoe, 1/2 in sauce
  • 8 eggs poached
  • 6 ham steaks heated
  • 0.9 ounces Knorr Hollandaise Sauce pkg prepared to package directions


  • Clean, peel and chop potatoes then add to water. Boil for 20 minutes until tender then drain.
  • To a food processor add the cabbage, onion and garlic and pulse until they are in small pieces.
  • Soften 1 Tbs butter in the pan the potatoes were cooked in. To the pot that the potatoes were cooked in sautee the cabbage mixture for 4-5 minutes.
  • Add the potatoes back into the pan plus the milk, butter, salt and pepper to taste, and parsley flakes. Using a potato masher smash everything together.
  • Take a cookie sheet and add parchment paper. Scoop out 8 patties then put them into the freezer for up to an hour. This step makes it SO MUCH EASIER to fry the patties.
  • Once they have cooled set up the staging area. In 3 separate containers crack 2 eggs, 1/2 cup flour with salt and pepper to taste then 1/2 cup breadcrumbs.
  • Bring 1/2 cup oil to frying to med/high heat for frying. Take the patties, flip on both sides into the flour, then the egg, then the breadcrumbs.
  • Add to oil in the pan frying on each side for 4-5 minutes. Remove and add to a plate with a paper towel.
  • Prepare the sauce as recommended on the package. Then all that's left to do is to cook the eggs which can be fried or poached. Heat the ham steaks.
  • Prepare on a plate and drizzle with the sauce. Enjoy!
