I made up this recipe back in 1985 when I got my first apartment and was begining to experiment in the kitchen. I was trying to use leftovers, but I didnt know how to cook. After many years of adjusting the recipe this is how we make it now. Turns out we love to eat this with breakfast, eggs, bacon and potato cakes!

We really like recipe for several reasons. First, no frying! Sometimes it's nice to bake instead of fry, and with this recipe you don't miss out on any flavor. And second, these are a terrific way to make use of leftover mashed potatoes! They give day-old taters a whole new life. Yum. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
