This is the first time I have made this recipe.. since I can't dine on white potatoes I found a recipe for making faux mashed potatoes using califlower. And I had left overs as its just me eating them. So the next day I thought about making them into patties and this is the result. I thought they were very good. I'm not a fancy picture taker but its better than no picture at all!! LOL I placed the leftover patties in a freezer bag for future meals as I said its only me eating these.
