chia seed potato cakes

This recipe came about because of left over Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes from a pot Roast dinner. I added the CHIA SEEDS to add a bit of fiber to the dish. It was a great use of the left overs, and was a great simple side dish. I served them with Sour Cream and Apple Sauce, my husband sometimes also adds Catsup to his. These Potato cakes are very tasty & by adding 4 tablespoons of Chia Seeds, I added 16 grams of fiber to the recipe. Both my husband & I truly enjoyed this tasty side dish.
