Potato Cakes

This recipe is a family recipe passed from my Great Grandmother, and ending up with me. My Great Grandfather came from Ireland and I'm pretty sure the recipe came from his side of the family. It's easy and uses those leftover mashed potatoes. You can eat them plain with just butter or toast them, butter and brown sugar on a split cake, and enjoy!
