What happens when you have some mashed potatoes left over? In my house, we don't waste mashed potatoes. We love them too much. I decided to take the leftover potatoes and make patties. To be honest, I am not sure at amounts since I used what I had. I am approximating what I think is correct. Since, we are talking, "leftovers", they are going to vary from place to place and time to time.
It has become almost a custom, in our home, to add a green vegetable to most dishes and since I usually have spinach, in the refrigerator, that often wins the place. That is what I added here with some red bell pepper and chopped onion.
1 tablespoon olive oil (more if needed)
2 cups cooked mashed potato, preferably cold
2 cups baby spinach, fresh and chopped
1/4 cup onions, chopped
1 cup tortilla crumbs (which added a really great flavor)
smidge of black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
1 egg, beaten
Mix together mashed potato, spinach, tortilla crumbs, onion, black pepper, chives and egg.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet.
I made small patties and used a tablespoon cookie scoop to form the patties. You may not want them so small and can use a half cup measuring cup for larger patties or if you want them really large, shape them to the size of choice.
Drop by scoopfuls into hot oil. Cook until the bottom is slightly browned and turn over, cooking the other side until also brown. Drain and serve.
Eat and enjoy.
