Throwing these together with the use of your left over mashed potatoes is great! Perfect for Breakfast or as a side at dinner.
Whats great about these is you can put any seasoning you like....even add cheese! They are a soft potato cake, not dry or pasty. If you like a firmer cake, add more flour.
YUMBO!

Step-by-Step
