FRIED POTATO CAKES
Why I Love This Recipe
This is a great recipe for using up leftover mashed potatoes - yum!
Ingredients You'll Need
2 cups cooked smashed potatoes ( plain, boiled and fork-smashed potatoes work best)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese ( can substitute cheddar)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder or 2 tablespoons thin sliced green onions
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup breadcrumbs
1/4-1/2 cup vegetable oil
Combine first 7 ingredients; chill. Shape mixture into 6 patties. Dip each patty into lightly beaten egg then lightly coat with breadcrumbs. Heat vegetable oil and fry over medium heat until lightly browned, turning once.
