Mashed Potato Cakes

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.

    My mother used to make these, I haven’t thought about them in years. I’m tempted to make some mashed potatoes just to make the pancakes.

    Happy New Year! I am going to have to make some mashed potatoes just so I can make these for breakfast. Beautiful.

    These have to be one of my favourite breakfast foods of all time. They bring the humble potato to new heights. It is funny how we come across so many interesting blogs. I found you by googling Anthony Sedlak’s Cottage Pie which was the Food Network Challenge last year.

    I’ll eat potato cakes any time of day! They look yummy…..Maybe some peanut sauce would go nicely.

    We do something similar with mashed potatoes, albeit we use freshly mashed which is allowed to cool down.
    Get a size, similar toy ours, open a trough in the middle, fill it with minced meat and onion mixture which is browned and seasoned. Bring over the sides and close the top with the potato.
    Then like you flour and fry.
    Makes a nice meal, but would not suggest it for breakfast.
    As with most of our meals we wash it down a while afterwards, this tiem with some coffee from our regular supplier The Tea and Coffee Emporium.

What Spice Are You

You Are Cilantro

The bad news is that
there are some people
who can't stand you.
The good news is that
most people love you more
than anything else in the world.
You are distinct, unusual, fresh,
and very controversial.
And you wouldn't have it
any other way.
