Leftover mashed potato cakes

    13 min

    This is a great recipe for leftover mashed potatoes. I never liked reheated mashed potatoes, but if you fry them in a pan as a potato cake, they taste delicious. You might need to adjust the ingredients depending on how much mashed potatoes you have left over.

    1. Combine mashed potatoes, egg, and pepper in a bowl and mix well together.
    2. Pour breadcrumbs into a small bowl. Shape potato mixture into 7 to 8cm cakes with wet hands and dip in breadcrumbs so they are evenly coated.
    3. Heat oil and butter in a nonstick frying pan over medium heat and cook potato cakes on both sides until they are heated through and browned, about 4 minutes per side.

    These are not PANCAKES but plain old potato cakes which are not the same. Been making these for over 50 years but better than these as mine contain a few extra ingredients not mentioned here. 'nuf sed. plamuk aka travellingchef  -  03 Apr 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
