Mashed Potato Patties

Today Is

So who has left over mashed potatoes? We do! do you? So i purposely  make more mashed potatoes so i can make these! They disappear fast. 


  • 2 cups chilled mashed potatoes 
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, for dredging
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder 


Divide the mashed potatoes into 8 equal portions. Use your hands to form 1/2-inch thick patties.
Heat  butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until almost smoking. Mix the flour with the salt, pepper  and garlic in a pie plate. Coat the potato patties in the flour mixture. Add the potato cakes to the pan and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook until they have formed a golden crust, 15 to 20 minutes. (Peek underneath using a spatula before turning.) Turn and cook the other side until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Season with additional salt and pepper and serve hot.
