It’s National Potato Day, and celeb chef Catherine Fulvio has teamed up with Bord Bia to create a few recipes to spice up the spud. Check out one of our faves below, or head to potato.ie for tons more.

Parmesan Potato Cakes and Chive and Lemon Drizzle

Makes 12 small cakes

??These potato cakes make an ideal starter and you can use the left over mash from the previous evening,? says Catherine. ?Queen potatoes have that lovely floury texture and are great to use for steaming and boiling. They are available late June to September.?

You’ll need:

50g? plain flour

400g Queen potatoes, steamed and pressed through a ricer or masher

1 egg, beaten

3 scallions, finely chopped

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 to 3 tbsp milk, if the mixture is too dry

4 tbsp grated parmesan

60g breadcrumbs

1 tbsp finely chopped parsley

Butter and oil, for frying

For drizzling:

2 tbsp chopped chives

? lemon, juice & zest

4 tbsp olive oil

Watercress or salad leaves, to garnish

Borage flowers, to garnish (optional)

Lemon wedges, to serve

1. Place the potato, flour, egg, scallions, salt and pepper into a mixing bowl, and mix well until all the ingredients come together and add a little milk, if necessary.

2. Using damp hands, divide the mixture in 12 portions and shape into small potato cakes.

3. Mix the parmesan, breadcrumbs and parsley together and toss onto a plate.

4. Roll in the parmesan breadcrumb mix. Place on a plate lined with parchment and set aside in the fridge for about 20 minutes.

5. Heat the oil or butter in a large fryingpan over a medium heat and carefully fry the potato cakes for about 2 minutes until lightly golden brown on each side.

6.?To make the drizzle, whisk all the ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.

7.?To serve, place 3 potato cakes on a serving plate, spoon over the drizzle and serve with watercress or salad leaves and borage flowers and lemon wedges.

Top tip:?Saute a finely chopped red chilli and add to the potato mix for that little extra heat and serve with a sweet chilli dipping sauce and some lime wedges for another twist.
