I followed the directions exactly and they were fantastic! Easy to make and such a great and different way to use mash. <br/>Such a delicious outcome from left over mash! We really enjoyed these.<br/>Thanks Miss Fannie for a wonderful recipe.

Nice use of leftover mashed potatoes; I froze half of the potato patties for a future meal. I used mrsteacher22's Mom's Mashed Potatoes #290458 for plain mashed potatoes relying on good quality russets for taste and made this recipe a few days later. With this recipe it is easy to control portions, and easy to prepare ahead, then pop in the oven without fuss. I fantasized about roasting some garlic and mixing chunks into the potato mixture before rolling in the bread crumbs, then adding a slight sprinkle of freshly grated parmesan cheese just before serving. Thank you for sharing. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.
