Parmesan potato patties

Another great way to use leftover mashed potatoes. I’m making them tonight as a matter of fact.

What you’ll need:

About 3 c leftover mashed potatoes
1 egg
1/3 c parmesan cheese
1/3 c dry bread crumbs
Oil to fry in

Pat cold potatoes out on your countertop or cutting board to about ½ inch thickness. Cut six rounds from the potatoes with a 3” biscuit cutter. You may need to gather the potatoes and pat them back out as you work.

Beat the egg in a bowl large enough to place the potato rounds in. Mix the bread crumbs and parmesan in another bowl large enough for the potato rounds to fit in or on a plate.

Dip each round first in egg, then in bread crumbs, pushing the crumbs slightly into the patties.

Put them in the freezer no longer than 10 minutes (you don’t want them to freeze) or in the refrigerator if you’re preparing ahead of time like I am. Cook the patties in hot oil about 3 minutes on each side (until they are browned). Three cups of potatoes usually makes six patties.

Cost:
eggs – $1.09/ dozen
parmesan cheese – $1.99
dry bread crumbs – $0.99
Total – $0.97
