Mashed Potato Cakes


Fry up some of these to use up those leftover whipped potatoes from your holiday dinners ! Crispy potato crust on the outside, soft fluffy potatoes with a hint of onion in a potato cake ! So much better than reheated leftovers!

2 Cups leftover whipped ( mashed ) potatoes
1/4 cup flour
1/2 onion chopped
1 or 2 eggs beaten , depends on the consistency  of your potatoes.
1 TBS  Fresh parsley or dried parsley
1 TBS Butter
Salt & Pepper to taste

Saute onion & parsley in butter or put in microwave bowl & cook until onion is soft about 3 minutes on high.
Stir this into your cold potatoes stirring well. Now stir in the flour & salt & pepper mixing well. Start with one beaten egg mixing it through the potato mixture.You should have a nice thick mixture that you can shape into patties If potato mixture seems clumpy add the second beaten egg to the mix. Stir well.If you think this is to runny add more flour to thicken it up. With wet hands shape mixture into patties about 1 inch thick and 3 inches across. Sprinkle with paprika. Fry in olive oil or butter over medium heat until golden brown, flip over, sprinkle with paprika & fry the other side. Fry about 8 minutes per side. Serve hot ! Makes about 8 patties. If serving these with breakfast you could crumble crisp cooked bacon into the mixture . I use about 4 pieces of bacon fried crisp then crumbled into the potatoes & stir well to evenly mix. Use the bacon grease to fry your patties instead of the oil or butter !
