5 Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. These are fantastic appetizers, or you could make the portions larger for an entree. My Mom never wasted anything. We commonly revisited leftover mashed potatoes in the form of potato cakes or browned in fat. This dish is inspired by those browned mashed potatoes, with those tasty bits of goodness in the potatoes, just a little more fancy! Use a well seasoned cast iron skillet if you have one.
