This is a great recipe for leftover mashed potatoes. I never liked reheated mashed potatoes, but if you fry them in a pan as a potato pancake, they taste delicious. You might need to adjust the ingredients depending on how much mashed potatoes you have left over.

  • Pour bread crumbs into a small bowl. Shape potato mixture into 3-inch patties with wet hands and dip in bread crumbs so they are evenly coated.

  • Heat oil and butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat and cook potato cakes on both sides until they are heated through and browned, about 4 minutes per side.

Cook's Note:

You can also add garlic, cayenne, or herbs to the mashed potato mixture, depending on your taste.
