Tasty and easy to prepare - and it is definitely a great use for leftovers! I used the basil and oregano option and added a little bit of shredded mozzerella with the Parmesan on top. Very enjoyable. Thanks for sharing! Veggie Swap 38

I'm not sure what happened with these. I guess my mashed potatoes had too much liquid in them; instead of having compact potato cakes we ended up with soft potatoes spread out all over the pan. The flavor was good, though. I don't blame the recipe; I think maybe we had the wrong kind of mash for this. Thanks for posting!
