I hate to admit this: we never have leftover mashed potatoes. Our family eats them the next day before I can do anything with them!

NO FAIL HASHBROWNS FOR THIS WEEKEND
This hash brown recipe is fool proof. It will give you crisp potato patties, just begging for a dash of hot sauce (or ketchup for the kids). The following instructions are for pattys, but you can also spread the mixture out in a big frying pan, then cut into wedges for serving.

3 cups shredded potatos or frozen potatos(I think work better) ¼ cup very thinly sliced green onions (optional)
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 egg (lightly beaten)
1½ teaspoons salt (or to taste)
¼ teaspoon black pepper (or to taste)
Gently toss the potatoes with the flour, salt and pepper (and onion if you are using it), then gently (I use my hands) mix in the lightly beaten egg. NOTE: I mix the salt & pepper into the egg to make sure the spices are distributed evenly throughout the potatoes.
Pre-heat your heavy frying pan to medium high and brush your skillet with a generous coating of vegetable oil (I like to use my electric frying pan).

Place 1/3 (lightly packed) potato mixture onto HOT, greased frying pan and then gently flatten the mound with your spatula, like this: Fry patties for 4 minutes, per side, or until they are golden brown and crispy.
 

Drain on paper towels, sprinkle with salt and serve immediately.
I love how these hash brown patties hold together, you can even pick them up and eat them like a commercial hash brown patty, but oh so much better tasting.

Hi,

For those of you who have made potato cakes out of leftover mashed potatoes, how did you do it?
