To make quick and easy potato pillows, you'll need the following ingredients:


  • 4 medium-sized potatoes
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onions
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Oil for frying


  1. Start by washing and peeling the potatoes. Then, cut them into smaller pieces and boil them in salted water until they become tender.

  2. Drain the potatoes and transfer them to a large bowl. Mash them well using a potato masher or fork until they're smooth and free of lumps.

  3. Add the grated cheese, chopped green onions, parsley (if using), salt, pepper, and flour to the mashed potatoes. Mix everything together until well combined.

  4. Take a small portion of the potato mixture and shape it into a small pillow-like patty. Repeat this process until you've used up all the mixture.

  5. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully place the potato pillows in the pan. Fry them for a few minutes on each side until they turn golden brown and crispy.

  6. Once cooked, transfer the potato pillows to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.

  7. Serve the potato pillows warm with ketchup, mayonnaise, or any other dipping sauce of your choice.

These potato pillows make a delicious and quick snack for children. Remember to take necessary precautions while working with hot oil. Enjoy!
