Vegan breakfast potatoes, fried in patties. You don't need eggs to make an easy vegan breakfast potato recipe. These potato patties are similar to a latke, but the potatoes are mashed instead of grated and held together with egg replacer instead of eggs. If you've got leftover potatoes, try using this recipe to use them up!


  • 8 potatoes (boiled and mashed)
  • 1 cup flour
  • Egg replacer for 1 1/2 eggs
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons oil (more or less as needed for frying)

Steps to Make It

  1. Mix the potatoes, flour, egg replacer, and salt. Turn the mixture onto a floured breadboard or counter top and knead into a dough, adding more flour if necessary until the dough is no longer sticky.

  2. Roll the dough out to a 3/4 inch thickness, then cut into rounds (a drinking glass works well for this).

  3. Lightly oil a frying pan or griddle and fry the rounds until browned on both sides, about 10 minutes. Serve with applesauce.
