    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      Scoop up 1/3 cup of mashed potatoes, press a slice of cheese in the center and pat the mashed potatoes around the cheese to enclose it.
    3. 3
      Flatten the potato cake slightly.
    4. 4
      Repeat with the remaining potatoes and cheese.
    5. 5
      In a medium skillet, (cast-iron is best), melt the butter in the oil over high heat.
    6. 6
      When fat begins to brown, carefully scoop two 1/2-cup mounds of shredded potato into the skillet; flatten them with a spatula and season with salt and pepper.
    7. 7
      Top each with a mashed potato round and cover with another 1/2 cup of the shredded potatoes. Lightly press the shredded potato into the mashed potato.
    8. 8
      Season with salt and pepper, reduce the heat to low and cook, turning once, until the cakes are crisp and golden, about 8 minutes.
    9. 9
      Transfer the potato cakes to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven.
    10. 10
      Repeat to make the remaining 2 cakes.
    11. 11
      Plate the potato cakes and sprinkle with the chopped green onion.
    12. 12
      Serve hot.
    13. 13
      If you are tempted to use frozen hash browns, don't. I tried it and was sadly disappointed with the results.
