Leftover mashed potatoes (I had just over 3 cups)
1/2 C. shredded cheddar cheese
1 T. bacon bits or pieces
2 scallions, sliced thin
2 T. vegetable oil
1/2 C. flour
First…this is what I put in mine, but you can add anything to these potatoes, just always use the 1 egg 1/2 C flour ratio.
Combine all ingredients and mix well, you want the mixture to be sort of like a dough but not too thick.
Heat oil in a large skillet. Using a large spoon, drop in the heated oil and press down slightly.
Cook approx. 2-3 minutes per side or until golden brown. Remove and place on a paper towel lined plate. Enjoy!
