Use leftover mashed potatoes from Thanksgiving dinner to make these delicious, crisp potato patties.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 8 minutes

Total Time: 23 minutes

Yield: 6 servings


  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. white pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. butter


Mix together mashed potatoes, beaten egg and onion in a medium bowl. Add flour, cheese, salt and pepper and stir.

Over medium heat, heat olive oil and butter in a medium size nonstick frying pan. Drop about 1/4 cup of the potato mixture into the frying pan, patting it into 3 inch circles that are 1/2" thick. Cook until bottom is browned and crisp, about 3-4 minutes. Carefully turn the patty over and cook the second side until brown and crisp, 3-4 minutes. Serve with ketchup or salsa.

Potatoe patties + onion, Guest Gary

I made these and added about 1/4 cup pancake mix, 1/2 small grated onion and a little grated garlic. They came out great - fried them in olive oil using my good old cast iron skillet. Try them with maple syrup or applesauce .... can't wait to make them again!!!
