1/2 Photos of Mashed Brown Potatoes
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.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Heat up a small fry pan (I use cast iron) over medium heat.
- 2Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix well the potatoes, 1/2 teaspoons of flour, herbs, garlic powder, salt and pepper together with a fork.
- 3Gather up the potato mixture with your hands and form into a patty and flatten slighty.
- 4Holding 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.
- 5Add 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.
- 6Using 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.
- 7Transfer to plate and cover with fried onions, if using.
- 9For Vegan omit butter.
