Mashed Potato Cakes

Tonight for dinner I used the leftover mashed potatoes from last night. I made really delicious mashed potato cakes and served them with a little sour cream and apple sauce. I also cooked some broccoli and seasoned it with a little salt and some butter - almost instant dinner. My daughter loved it and it was ready super fast!

Mashed Potato Cake
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1-2 Tbs dried minced onion (or grate a fresh onion, or saute some chopped onion in olive oil and add)

Combine potato with egg, flour, salt, pepper and onion. Form into thick patties and dredge in a little extra flour
Heat 1 Tbs butter and 1 Tbs olive oil in a cast iron skillet, add cakes and let cook over medium heat for 2-3 mins without disturbing until a golden crust forms, flip and cook other side about 2 more mins. Serve with sour cream and applesauce.
