Why I Love This Recipe

I never tire of this childhood favorite. Crispy on the outside and soft and creamy on the inside with just a hint of onion, these are terrific with eggs for breakfast or as a side dish at dinner.

Ingredients You'll Need

leftover mashed potatoes, cold
2 large eggs
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup finely diced onion
1/4 cup flour, more for dusting
canola oil


Stir together the mashed potatoes, eggs, onion, salt, pepper, and 1/4 cup flour. Form into patties and dredge in flour, patting off the excess. Fry patties in a preheated pan over medium-high heat for about 6 minutes, flipping every couple minutes. Serve topped with ketchup.
