These are a wonderful way to use up leftover mashed potatoes. Just throw a few extra potatoes in to boil the night before and you'll be able to make these gems. The best part is that you can make them of any meal of the day. A savory breakfast or as a side to lunch or dinner.
Parmesan Potato Cakes
2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
1 large egg
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp parsley
Mix together completely. Form into same size patties - I used a meatball sized scoop. Heat a frying pan with 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil and 1 tbsp butter. Place patties in the heated pan and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.
