We love potato cakes. I always use leftover mashed potatoes to make these little cakes. They are great as appetizers with Honey Mustard Sauce or Salsa, for breakfast or just anytime.
2 cups mashed potatoes
1 small onion or several green onions, chopped
1/4 teaspoon black pepper (can use cayenne)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup oil for frying
Mix all ingredients except the oil into the potatoes. Make into patties. Fry in hot oil until browned on both sides. Makes about 12 patties. Enjoy!
Note: Can add chopped bacon or ham and shredded cheese.
