How to Use Up leftover mashed potatoes
Quite often I will make some extra mashed potato as it is better to have too much than to have too little, especially if you are making it to top a pie with it 🙂 Also, it can be difficult to judge the quantity you need for some meals.
But really it is not a problem as there are plenty of things you can do with leftover mashed potatoes. This recipe is one of them. Just store your leftover potatoes in the fridge in a covered container until you want to use it.
I particularly like this recipe for cheesy potato patties as cheese and onion really do taste well together, especially with the taste of the fried potato.
What to serve with potato patties?
These potato cakes are especially good served with some cold ham, or as an alternative for hashed browns at breakfast with some sausages, bacon, baked beans and fried eggs. Delicious!
But really it is up to you. We actually enjoy them on their own with some ketchup or mayonnaise as a quick and easy warm snack.
Adding some bacon is also a nice variation if you have any you need to use up:
We hope you enjoy making these potato cakes and look forward to hearing how you get on!
