Leftover Makeovers: Mashed Potato Cakes

Printable recipe for Leftover Makers: Mashed Potato Cakes provided by Cooks Corner, Green Bay.



3 cups leftover mashed potatoes (any kind)

1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese

2 TBSP chives chopped fine, plus extra for garnish

1 egg, lightly beaten

2-3 TBSP flour, plus more for dredging

Vegetable or canola oil

2 bacon strips, cooked and chopped

2/3 cup sour cream

In a large bowl combine the potatoes, cheese, chives, egg and 2 TBSP flour. Mix with your hands until well combined and if the mixture seems a little wet, add another tablespoon of flour. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, scoop out level scoops of potato mixture. Roll into a ball in your hands, then flatten into a 1/2 inch thick disk. Dredge lightly in flour.

Heat 1/4 inch of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. In batches, fry each potato cake on each side until golden (about 3 minutes per side). When finished, place potato cakes on a paper towel lined sheet pan and sprinkle with salt. Add sour cream and chives for garnish. Serve immediately.
