I will never toss out left over mashed potatoes again! This recipe was a hit! I didn’t have green onions so I sautéed a quarter onion and then added I small clove garlic for the last minute. My recipe was half the portion because I only had one cup of potatoes left over. This would go nicely as a side dish for any meat entree as well.
I made these tonight since I had leftover mashed potatoes and all but the fresh herbs but I used dried in it’s p,ace. I also decided to bake them in the oven as another person mentioned and they came out great. My husband loved them, as did I.
Fantastic recipe! Thanks so much for all of the comments and recipe notes, they really helped! I used leftover twice-bakec potatoes and leftover steak added. Came out GREAT! This is a 5 star “keeper”.
Everyone loved these it was a real hit. The only thing I changed was adding a little hunk of shredded Swiss cheese. Used my cast iron skillet and they browned beautifully just like the picture.
Made these tonight with leftover garlic mashed potatoes and they were excellent. We were surprised at how the basil and parsley added to the yummy flavor without standing out. I only used one egg since everything held together fine with just the one and only added 1/2 teaspoon salt since there was already some in the potatoes and it was perfect. I will definitely make these again. Thanks for the recipe!
Just what I was looking for. Thank you for helping me be creative and use what I had in the fridge. The fresh basil was such a nice touch. They were delicious!
