    BriarCraft's Note:

    My mother used to make too many mashed potatoes, just so she'd have the leftovers to make these cakes. Now I do, too. They're very simple and a great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes.

      I made this this morning for breakfast. I was going to post this until I found this already posted. My mom makes these all the time. We serve these with ketchup. My mom makes them without onion and parsley and eats them with syrup. I did have to add a lot of flour in order to handle them to make patties. My leftover potatoes were made with milk & butter but they may not have been stiff enough. Awesome for breakfast. Easier than fried potatoes. Potatoes, gotta love em! Thanks Wildrose!

      Don'y know where the flavor came from, but these were great. Nice and brown on the outside and creamy in the middle. Thanks

      My family loved these. They were moist on the inside and crunchy on the outside. They were even delicious cold. Thanks for sharing!
