    CulinaryQueen's Note:

    Got some leftover mashed potatoes? Need something different to do with them? Have them in the morning with your bacon and eggs or even as a side dish. Even though the directions seem long, these are quick and easy to prepare. Sometimes I fry up a chopped onion to go with it. I'm showing the recipe to make just one patty. You can easily change the amount you make to suit your needs. I don't normally measure anything, but gave measurements for the purpose of this recipe.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Heat up a small fry pan (I use cast iron) over medium heat.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix well the potatoes, 1/2 teaspoons of flour, herbs, garlic powder, salt and pepper together with a fork.
    3. 3
      Gather up the potato mixture with your hands and form into a patty and flatten slighty.
    4. 4
      Holding the patty in the palm of your hand, sprinkle a bit of flour on the patty. (I use a shaker can) Gently pat the flour onto the patty, flip over and do the same with the other side.
    5. 5
      Add olive oil or butter (I sometimes use a bit of both) to the heated pan. When the oil is hot, gently place the patty into the pan. IMPORTANT: DO NOT MOVE THE PATTY AROUND. Let cook about 3-5 minutes.
    6. 6
      Using a spatula and a fork, gently flip the patty over to cook on the other side. The potato should be nicely browned. Again, DO NOT move it around in the pan. Cook for another 3-5 minutes until browned and heated through.
    7. 7
      Transfer to plate and cover with fried onions, if using.
    8. 8
    9. 9
      For Vegan omit butter.

      This is the best. It is funny because I haven't thought of these in years. My Mom who passed away quite a few years ago made these all the time. She did not use the flour and butter was a must in our household. Thanks for the memories. I know I will be making these soon.

      Really good! My husband loved it and I loved getting rid of the leftover mashed potatoes I had. My kids didn't really eat it. I found that butter works better than oil. Thanks for the great recipe!
