Crispy Mashed Potato Cakes

     A great way of using leftover mashed potatoes is to make them into crispy potato cakes.  My mother has always done this and throughout the years I have naturally followed in her footsteps.  I had some red skinned mashed potatoes mixed with chives leftover from before Thanksgiving and not wanting them to go to waste, I created this old standby as an add-on for today's lunch.

Crispy Mashed Potato Cakes

Mold mashed potatoes into an oval patty form about an inch thick.  Dip patty into a beaten egg wash and coat with bread crumbs.  Fry in melted butter on medium heat until a nice golden brown color.  Place cooked patty on a separate pan and place in an oven preheated to 250 degrees to keep warm while you prepare any other patties you are making.

Enjoy with a dollop of sour cream.
