  1. Prepare the Potatoes:
    • Start by peeling the potatoes and then grate them using the coarse side of your grater. Place the grated potatoes in a colander and press to squeeze out as much liquid as possible. This will help in achieving that desired crispiness.
  2. Mix Ingredients:
    • Transfer the drained potatoes to a large mixing bowl. Add the grated smoked cheese, potato starch, chopped parsley, salt, pepper, and paprika. Mix everything together until well combined. The starch will help bind the ingredients and contribute to the crunch.
  3. Shape the Mixture:
    • Take portions of the potato mixture and shape them into small, flat patties or balls, depending on your preference. Make sure they are not too thick so that they cook through and become crispy on the outside.
  4. Fry the Potatoes:
    • Heat a generous amount of vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Once hot, carefully place the potato patties in the oil. Fry them until they are golden brown and crispy on both sides. This should take about 3-4 minutes per side. Do not overcrowd the pan to ensure even cooking.
  5. Drain and Serve:
    • Once the potato patties are crispy and golden, remove them from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil. This step ensures your potatoes will be extra crispy.
  6. Enjoy:
    • Serve your crispy smoked cheese potatoes hot, garnished with a bit more fresh parsley if desired. They are perfect on their own or with your favorite dipping sauce.


  • For an extra flavor kick, you can add minced garlic or onion powder to the potato mixture.
  • Ensure the oil is hot enough before frying to prevent the patties from absorbing too much oil and becoming soggy.

This crispy smoked cheese potatoes recipe is a delightful twist on traditional potato dishes, offering a perfect balance of flavors and textures. Whether you’re hosting a gathering or just looking for a tasty snack, these crispy treats are sure to be a hit!
