Too many leftover mashed potato cakes.  No problem.  Make these delicious mashed potato cakes.  They are delicious as a side dish or for breakfast with butter and syrup or with eggs.  Try them with Applesauce or Spiced Apples.

3 or 4 cups of leftover mashed potatoes

1 egg, slightly beaten

Salt to taste

All-purpose flour


Vegetable oil for frying


Beat the egg with the mashed potatoes until smooth.  Add the salt and begin, a bit at a time, working in all-purpose until you have a mixture that is about the consistency of soft biscuit dough.  Form into round patties about half an inch thick and three inches in diameter.  Heat vegetable oil over a medium-high heat and fry the potato cakes until they are golden brown on both sides.  These are excellent as a side dish with meat or for breakfast with eggs.  If using them is a savory application try adding a bit of minced fresh parsley.
