JANUARY JUMPSTART: Low cholesterol parmesan potato pancake


Added 25 January 2018


Diet can play an important role in lowering your cholesterol. Research shows that a bowl of oatmeal can help lower your cholesterol. Even a handful of walnuts or a baked potato topped with some heart-healthy margarine can also do the trick.

In fact, a few simple tweaks to your diet along with exercise and other heart-healthy habits, may be helpful in lowering your cholesterol.

So you think the food has to be bland and without taste! Well, we are here to tell you that eating a healthy diet doesn’t mean the end of taste. Check out this delicious low-cholesterol recipe and we guarantee you’ll forget you’re eating for your health!

This recipe is meatless, low in cholesterol and saturated fat. With only four milligrams of cholesterol, this potato pancake packs a punch of flavour. Olive oil is a healthier way to fry or sauté foods because it’s rich in monounsaturated fat. (NATION ARCHIVES)

Prep: 10 minutes. Cook: 12 to 16 minutes. Serves 4 (serving size: two pancakes)


2 cups leftover mashed potatoes

2 tablespoons fresh chives or green onions, chopped

1 large egg white

1/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs, divided

2 tablespoons fresh Parmesan cheese, grated

2 teaspoons olive oil, divided


Combine potatoes, chives, egg white, and 2 tablespoons breadcrumbs in a large bowl.

Combine 2 tablespoons breadcrumbs and cheese on a small plate. Divide potato mixture into 8 equal (1/4-cup) portions; dredge in breadcrumb mixture, shaping each portion into a 1/4-inch-thick patty.

Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in large non-stick skillet. Add 4 patties; cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until golden. Repeat with 1 teaspoon oil and remaining 4 patties.

Serve pancakes hot with applesauce and low-fat sour cream.
