DHARMA REVIEW: We use this as our base recipe but dress it up! Chop and drain well some roasted green chiles, crush some garlic, and add some cumin!

Britt REVIEW: I actually make extra mashed everytime just so I can make this recipe. I've also made it into balls and deep fried, works great both ways.

bookworm REVIEW: I had made a big batch of mashed potatoes ahead of time to go with chicken fried steak for 8 people. 3 people cancelled on us so I put the steaks back in the freezer but had all these extra mashed to deal with. Made this recipe the next day and LOVED them! Added a little garlic and finely minced rosemary. It's a good basic recipe that is pretty forgiving and will let you change flavors and such.

Alisa REVIEW: Great way to use leftover mashed potatoes. My husband and I thought a good addition might be a little garlic. I made these for breakfast the day after Christmas this year to use the mass quantities of potatoes we cooked and had leftover.

Trish REVIEW: This was an EXCELLENT way to use up leftover mashed potatoes from my Thanksgiving dinner. I HATE throwing away food, so I'm always looking for clever ways to use things up in the kitchen. I used a gluten-free flour blend in place of regular flour and threw in some chopped chives and parsley that were in my refrigerator. I think the only thing I would change about this recipe is to cut back on the oil. I didn't use a full 1/4 cup, about 3 Tbsp., and this was still quite a bit. If you get your pan hot enough, you should only need 2 Tbsp., or even less, to get the patties browned and heated through. Because these are potatoes and quite porous, they WILL absorb quite a bit of the oil. Mine were a bit heavy on my stomach. Otherwise, perfectly easy snack or cheap meal for any night of the week!
