To avoid dirtying another dish, mash the potatoes in the same pot used to cook them. The cakes can be shaped a few hours ahead of time, covered, and chilled until you're ready to eat. After chilling, cook them in the pan for an extra minute to make sure the inside of the cakes are thoroughly heated. Two potato cakes have 761 milligrams of potassium.
