Leftover Mashed Potato Patties also known as mashed potato cakes or mashed potato pancakes. Fluffy patties created with leftover mashed potatoes—filled with cheese, green onion and rolled in bread crumbs before frying to a golden brown. This Thanksgiving instead of having the same old mashed potatoes as leftovers create something new. These mashed potato pancakes are just what your day after Thanksgiving breakfast or lunch needs. They are super simple to put together, taste fantastic and make the perfect side dish!

I’m an old country gal, and my mother always fried in bacon grease or home-made lard. I said old. 🙂
