Wanted to find a way to use leftover mashed potatoes, read a few recipes and then made this one up. It was delicious!

We enjoyed these fritters. I am surprised at how well they stayed together without an egg to bind it. I used fresh chives and because I never use seasoning salt I used a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Thanks for posting your recipe. Reviewed for 2007 Fall PAC.
