When I think potato cakes, I think breakfast.
served with fried eggs and bacon
I love leftover Mashed Potato Cakes for breakfast.
Just take leftover mashed potato and refrigerate it overnight (must be real potato and not instant!).
Form cakes in the morning with the cold potato.
Dredge them in flour and fry in hot bacon grease, turning once (I keep them two at a time, makes it easier to fry and turn)..not the healthiest thing in the world, but oh so good.
