My Crispy Mashed Potato Cakes

My mom use to make these all the time with left over mashed potatoes. She would put onions and break up bread crumbs without the crust from a loaf of bread and fry them up in butter. I liked them better than regular mashed potatoes. I made some changes by adding cheese and bacon yum.
