My main focus for this meal was using up the last of those left over mashed potatoes before they went bad.
however much left over mashed potatoes you happen to have....I had about 2 cups worth
1 egg (to hold it together)
about 1/4 cup of flour (to make it a little stiff)
salt and pepper to taste
Mix all of this in a bowl.....I just mixed it up in the container I had it stored in! Drop onto a hot skillet that you have melted about a tablespoon of butter in....yes I said butter pull it out, enjoy the flavor, your not using that much, it will make them taste right!!! Brown you blobs on both sides and serve with ketchup (that's how I got Bear to eat hers!!). Of course when I got done cooking the potato cakes, I added a bit of bacon drippings to my pan and fried up that sliced ham!! Country food is the best!!!
