With the addition of shredded cheese, these potato fritters will have an extra savory kick that’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser! Enjoy your cheesy potato fritters for a quick and tasty dinner.

Here’s the revised recipe with the addition of shredded cheese:


  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and grated
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese (such as cheddar, mozzarella, or your favorite type)
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Sour cream or applesauce for serving (optional)


  1. Prepare Potato Mixture: In a large bowl, combine the grated potatoes, chopped onion, minced garlic, all-purpose flour, salt, black pepper, beaten egg, and shredded cheese. Mix everything well until evenly combined.
  2. Heat Oil: Heat about 1/4 inch of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Form Fritters: Drop spoonfuls of the potato mixture into the hot oil, flattening them slightly with a spatula to form fritters.
  4. Fry: Cook the fritters for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy.
  5. Drain: Once cooked, remove the fritters from the skillet with a slotted spoon and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  6. Serve: Serve the potato fritters hot with sour cream or applesauce on the side, if desired.
