Here is a great way to use up those leftover mashed potatoes. These potato patties are a savory alternative to the traditional flour-based pancake. I cook mine in bacon grease, but butter or beef tallow would work well too. Serve with a few pieces of bacon and a gently fried egg.
makes 2-3 potato patties
1 to 1 1/2 cups cold leftover mashed potatoes
grease for cooking
salt and pepper to taste
Mix potatoes and egg. Add enough milk until mixture has a slightly runny consistency. Drop by 1/2 cup-fulls onto hot greased pan (350 degrees on my nonstick griddle). Sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired. Cook about 10 minutes or until golden brown. Flip, and continue cooking until both sides are golden brown. Serve with bacon and eggs.
