Have you ever had mashed potato cakes?
My mom would make these with left-over mashed potatoes when I was little.
We don't have left-over mashed potatoes very often, but one day we did. I thought I'd let Audrey get a taste of this childhood treat. She loved them! Now she'll request them without even having left overs.
I don't have a true recipe, I just make them the way my mom did. However, I did look for an actual recipe to share with you. I found some that you add a beaten egg or dredge the 'cakes' in flour. I don't do either of these (I have used a little flour if the texture of the potatoes need help forming patties).
Take your left over potatoes and
form into patties.
I use a non-stick pan with a little canola oil rubbed in it.
Cook till golden brown, yummy!
You could also add different seasonings, chopped onions, shredded cheese, or maybe top them with sour cream.
