  • 2 cups ham finely chopped
  • 2 medium potato baked
  • 2 medium green onions minced
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 tsp sage
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 cups panko crumbs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil


  • In a food processor or meat grinder, grind the meat into fine pieces. Transfer to a medium mixing bowl.
  • Scoop the flesh from the baked potatoes, crumble and add to the bowl. Discard the skins. Add the green onion, egg, sage, dill and pepper. Mix until well blended.
  • Place the panko crumbs in a pie plate. Using your hands, form the ham mixture into six round ham patties, about 1/2 inch thick. One at a time, place the ham patties in the panko crumbs to coat. You may need to push down for them to stick. Turn over to coat both sides.
  • In a large skillet set over medium high, heat the oil until sizzling but not smoking. Working in batches, cook each ham patty until golden brown on both side. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate.
