Broccoli Cheese Patties

Hubby loved these... the kids however were not fans! 

1 russet potato, peeled and cubed
1 cup broccoli florets
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
3 tablespoons panko or bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1/8 teaspoons garlic powder
1/8 teaspoons onion powder
1/2 cup panko or bread crumbs (This was WAY too much 1/4 cup is plenty)
1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
Place the potato cubes in a steamer pot over boiling water and cook for 8 minutes.
Add the broccoli to the steamer pot and steam the vegetables for an additional 2 minutes, or until they are fork tender.
Then, remove everything from pot and allow them to cool.
Mash the potatoes in a large bowl and chop the broccoli florets into bite-size pieces.
Add the broccoli, cheese, panko, salt, egg, garlic and onion powder to the bowl and combine.
Place the remaining 1/2 cup of panko in a separate bowl.
Using a ice cream scoop or 2 tbsp to measure, roll the mixture into balls, coat them in the panko and then shape each one into a small patty. (You could freeze them at this point)
Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a skillet over medium heat, place the patties in the skillet and press down with a spatula to flatten a little.
Pan-fry for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden.
