"I searched the internet for a recipe to use up some left over mashed potatoes. This is what I found and made. It's simple, easy, and a great way to use up left over mashed potatoes. This is one recipe that I always come to when I have leftover mashed potatoes. I once made these and I wasn't serving them right away, so I let them cool down then I froze them. A few weeks later I removed them from the freezer let them defrost and they were just as good. I have even added leftover chicken pieces and leftover meatloaf to this and it was yummy."

"So glad to finally figure out what I was doing wrong! Made these with chopped onion (no green onion) and they turned out great! Hubby was very happy as he hadn't had "the" potato cakes like his grandma made for many years. He said these were perfect!!! :)"
"I used leftover stuffed potato filling with mashed potatoes, ham, spinach and pesto. Delicious. I have also added parmesan cheese which was also very good."
"5 stars plus!! These were so quick to make, so delicious, light texture and just the right amount of flavor. I used leftover spinach mashed potatoes and followed the recipe exactly. Serived with poached eggs and sausage. Thanks for sharing this great keeper recipe!"
"I made them just as directed by your recipe, they were excellent. This is a definite keeper. Thanks."
"I have been making potato cakes for 54 years, and did pretty good, if I must say so.. but these are the best! Thanks for posting this recipe.. its going in my special file for use many many times.."
"These were great! I had lots of leftover mashed potatoes from Thanksgiving so I used some to make these potato cakes and we really liked them. Thanks for sharing, daisygrl64!!"
"These were so good!!! I didn't have green onions or baking powder so I made them without but it didn't matter, they were still yummy!! Thanks!"
"Oh Yum...I wanted to make these to go with my catfish. I used instant mashed potatoes and they were perfect. Thanks for the recipe!"
"Made this as directed and turned out wonderful. Entire family loved them and wanted more. I added shredded cheese and it added a nice extra depth of flavor. Will be making more mashed potatoes for dinner just so we can have these again. Didn't read all the way through the introduction (or didn't remember) so didn't freeze the leftovers, wish I had and will be sure and do that next time."
"These were a great hit. DH said to definetly save this recipe. The only thing I added were some scallions. Thank You for the keeper."
"These were pretty good. Nice way to use up mash potatoes. I fried up quite a few of them so I'll try to freeze some of them for later use."
"Better than I thought it would be. Reminds me of store bought potato hash browns that come frozen in rectangular shapes. I gave it 4 stars because only one of my kids ate them. Definately worth the try."
"Really good dish for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The perfect use for leftover mashed potatoes!"
"Sounds just what I was looking for. I can't wait to try them tonight. What a perfect way to use up leftover mashed potatoes! :)"
"I made these last night with some leftover garlic mashed potatoes. They were really good, I added some chives and parmesan cheese and served them with sour cream on the side. Even our picky eater had seconds. Thanks for a great recipe. Next time I'm going to add cheddar cheese and chopped crisp bacon and serve them for breakfast."
"These are very good, and an easy way to use up those leftovers. I made mine to go with some eggs, for a "breakfast" dinner. Made for Spring 2009 PAC."
