To make this amazing Made potato cakes with leftover mashed potatoes You’ll need the following ingredients:

Ingredients

  • 3 cups mashed potatoes
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1-2 cups all purpose flour
  • vegetable oil

  • ranch seasoning
  • garlic

Instructions

  • Place your mashed potatoes, eggs, cheese, and one cup of flour into a large bowl.
  • Stir until WELL combined.

  • Once the oil is hot, drop the batter by 3/4 cup full (or smaller if you’d like) into the oil. Use a spoon to spread slightly into a round “pancake”.
