The ideal party snack, these chilli Philly potato cakes are so easy to make and are really tasty – especially with some chilli-infused Philadelphia dip!

Made with potatoes, egg, spring onion and breadcrumbs, they can be rustled up with just a few ingredients in around half an hour.

A delicious alternative to chips – or great as a side with a fry-up!


  • 600g floury potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 25g fresh coriander, chopped
  • 5 spring onions, trimmed and chopped
  • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 100g fine dry breadcrumbs
  • 1 tbsp vegetable or sesame oil
  • 150g Philadelphia Light with Sweet Chilli
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp light mayonnaise


  • To make the potato cakes, cook the potatoes in boiling water until tender. Drain and mash until smooth.

  • Stir in the egg yolk, coriander, spring onions and lemon zest. Season to taste.

  • Mix well together and shape into about 16-20 small cakes. Put the breadcrumbs on a plate. Roll the cakes firmly in the crumbs. Heat the oil in a heavy based non stick frying pan and cook the potato cakes for 3-4 minutes on both sides or until browned and heated through.

  • Meanwhile make the sauce. Put the Philly and lime juice in a small basin and mix together. Add the mayo and stir to give a soft consistency. Serve the hot potatoes cakes with the Philly dipping sauce.
