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!!! :)

Very good flavor! I fried them in peanut oil for extra crispiness!

Someone else had commented that the recipe called for "way too much" flour. It will vary depending on the consistency of the leftover mashed potatoes that you're using. Very good recipe!

This might help, I don't use peppers, but I do use breadcrumb to make it hold together and instead of frying I bake in the oven at 350 , I spray the bottom of pan ,I but a small bit of butter ,I use can't believe it not butter on top. Bake for about 4 -5 until brown on bottom and flip on other side until brown . its a recipe that's been handed down

Good rule of thumb for making potato patties. I didn't have green onion so I used a little dry onion. The green would be pretty, though! I also added about 1/2 cup of grated mild cheddar to a doubled recipe. Then fried them in oil. The trick is to not try to turn them too soon, as is the case for all pan-fried patties. I really liked them!

These were delicious, but perhaps just a tiny bit too salty (and I love salt, don't get me wrong! but I seem to prefer less in the batter so that you can salt the tops when they're cooked!). *delicious with plain greek yogurt (or sour cream)*! Thanks for a great recipe!

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!
