Mashed Potato Cakes

Potato leftovers can be used to make a a hot and tasty cake. 

2 c. mashed potatoes (great for leftover mashed potatoes)
Salt & pepper
1 egg, beaten
4 tbsp. minced onion
Mix potatoes, egg, onion, salt and pepper. Add milk until mixture stirs easily and can be shaped into patties. If you get the mixture too thin, add a little flour. Optional: For extra crisp. dust outside of cakes with flour on both sides.
Heat a combination of oil and butter in a skillet, and when hot, gently place the cake in the pan. Don’t move it or disturb it until the bottom has achieved a nice crunchy browned crust- it could take 10 minutes or more- then carefully turn it over and allow the other side to brown as well. Keep the heat around the medium mark

Optional –  Top with sour cream and garnish w. chopped chives.
