Growing up, I remember my friends' moms making these. My mom never did and I was always curious about them. At Hubs' request, we were about to eat leftover Thanksgiving mashed potatoes for supper tonight for the umpteenth time and I absolutely refused...so he got these as a surprise with his breakfast this morning! I remember my friends' moms adding egg, but I also remember them adding a little flour and finely chopped onion, so that's what I did. (Let me tell you, these memories go back a LOT of years, so that tells you these mashed potato patties have been around a looooong time) I have to admit the idea of Italian seasoning in these wasn't moving me, so I added some Penzey's Buttermilk Ranch Seasoning instead (I'll bet Hidden Valley Buttermilk Ranch Seasoning would be excellent too) These are mashed potatoes after all, and as such are obviously mushy, so I made certain not to turn the patties too soon. Hubs had never heard of these before but loved 'em. I thought they were pretty darned good too, 'tho I found they require a lot of seasoning. They were indeed crispy on the outside, and mashed potato-y on the inside. It was an excellent way to make use of the last of the Thanksgiving mashed potates and were a perfect complement to our scrambled egg Sunday morning breakfast.
