When making mashed potatoes,”experts”, say one potato for every two people.
Yikes, I always count at least one potato per person with an extra two to three to make sure we don’t run out. No wonder we are faced with mounds and mounds of leftover mashed potatoes.
You don’t have to worry if you have a couple of recipes up your sleeve to deal with leftover potatoes like these Mashed Potato Patties.
Especially this recipe for Potato patties, it will make you glad you have plenty of leftover mashed potatoes and you might start even planning on having extra by making more in the first place.
If you initially made chunky potatoes or our Crazy Good Rustic Mashed Potatoes you will need to mash the potatoes a little more prior to mixing up this recipe. The easiest way to do this is to use a potato ricer, it’s not that expensive and it can really save you in time and effort.
Just a note, this Fried Potato Patties recipe is simply divine made from our Garlic Mashed Potato Casserole, you just have to try them!
But I must confess, I may will be making extra potatoes just to guarantee leftover potatoes, all because my family loves to eat these golden Potato Patties.
Maybe this is why I don’t often listen to “experts” and I cook the way I cook.
