One of the leftovers that we had from our big Thanksgiving dinner was mashed potatoes. I am not too sure how it happened but there was over 6 cups of leftover mashed potatoes.
Anyway, today I decided to make some mashed potato cakes!
4 cups leftover mashed potatoes
1 cup flour
Mix together and season to taste! I used...
3 tbsp. onion powder
2 tsp. garlic powder
4 tsp. pepper
3 tsp. seasoned salt
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
Mix the seasonings into the potato mixture. Make into patties. Place in a skillet with 2 TBSP olive oil and 3 TBSP butter. Fry til golden brown(5-7 minutes) Turn over. Fry til golden brown. When done cooking, drain on paper towels. Serve.
IF you don't feel like doing up the potato cakes you can just melt about 3 TBSP. butter in a frying pan and slap some of the mashed potatoes in the pan and fry them up like hash browns. Sometimes I fix them plain and other times I spice them up with pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and seasoned salt.
