A classic! I like to use butter for frying these. Try frying some bacon, crumble into the mashed potatoes, and use a little of the bacon oil to fry in. Seasoning on the top helps get the crispy skin that I covet. If the potatoes hold their shape well and aren't too crumbly I skip the egg. For gastro decadence, put one of these atop your open faced meatloaf sandwich or burger. I can hear my arteries screaming.

these are great! I mixed it up and dropped them into the little pockets in my sandwich maker and they were nice and crispy in about 3 minutes. yum!

Tasty way to use up mashed taters. Added shredded cheddar, as other reviewers suggested. Make sure your heat is high enough before you start frying, I had problems keeping mine together when I flipped them. Thanks for the recipe!
