    daisygrl64's Note:

    I searched the internet for a recipe to use up some left over mashed potatoes. This is what I found and made. It's simple, easy, and a great way to use up left over mashed potatoes. This is one recipe that I always come to when I have leftover mashed potatoes. I once made these and I wasn't serving them right away, so I let them cool down then I froze them. A few weeks later I removed them from the freezer let them defrost and they were just as good. I have even added leftover chicken pieces and leftover meatloaf to this and it was yummy.

      So glad to finally figure out what I was doing wrong! Made these with chopped onion (no green onion) and they turned out great! Hubby was very happy as he hadn't had "the" potato cakes like his grandma made for many years. He said these were perfect!!! :)

      I used leftover stuffed potato filling with mashed potatoes, ham, spinach and pesto. Delicious. I have also added parmesan cheese which was also very good.

      5 stars plus!! These were so quick to make, so delicious, light texture and just the right amount of flavor. I used leftover spinach mashed potatoes and followed the recipe exactly. Serived with poached eggs and sausage. Thanks for sharing this great keeper recipe!
