Hello to all, Like everyone else, back to my granny. She also used left-over mashed potatoes. I remember eating them for breakfast, as smallish pancakes with a little pat of home-churned butter and syrup. Soooo good.
She also "fryed" them in bacon grease. (I know, redneck and proud) I also remember them as a side. She would mince onion, red or green bell pepper, she would use left-over corn, whole or cream, minced left-over ham, bacon. Let your imagination loose. Some times she would crumble sausage in skillet and break up and fry like hamburger, when cooled, she would mix with potatoes and fry for breakfast. My sister loved these with catsup, uck, I loved them plain. Bless All.

I know that as a child my aunt used to fry everything in bacon grease and just about everything tasted great. Thank you everyone for your help and I will try them both ways, with and without mashed potatoes and with and without bacon grease. Of course that means I will have to go and buy bacon. What a hardship having to eat bacon. LOL What a great way to use leftovers.

MY MOTHER USED TO COOK THE POTATOS FIRST THEN GRATED THEM WHEN COOL. HAVING A DEEP ENOUGH FRYING PAN HELPED.
