This is a remix dish from left over mashed potatoes from a previous meal.This is also a Budget friendly and healthy side dish to go with many entrees. I decided to add a bit of extra veggies to the mashed potatoes by adding shredded zucchini and Carrots, & then add grated onions to give it flavor and eggs and flour to hold it all together. I even used extra Virgin Olive Oil.

This was a great economical way to reuse the mashed potatoes and they tasted delicious. You can serve them with Apple Sauce, Catsup , or sour Cream, but my hubby liked them plain. Simple & easy to prepare & quite tasty.
