Potato Patties

Recipe by CookingSandefer

This is a great way to get babies to eat mashed potatoes. They are great for adults too! Very yummy! If you don't have cornflakes you can use any low-sugar cereal. Also try this recipe with 1/4 t nutmeg. I like to make mashed potatoes with the peels on. You can do it either way with this recipe. These freeze well. This recipe is from Better Baby Food

I tried this with an organic version of Corn Flakes and it didn't work as well. I think a little sugar is a good thing for this recipe (regular Corn Flakes, or even Frosted Flakes), and I think the nutmeg is a must unless trying for young toddlers - in which case plain may be better. A little plain, but easy enough to jazz up a bit.
