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!
