I know these pictures are of smooshed potatoes, ...

I've been known to make mashed potatoes just to have them on hand for potato cakes.

Yesterdays mashed potatoes, salt and pepper, pinch of cayenne, chives, whatever I feel like at the moment, beat in some flour to help the cakes hold together, make into patties, fry till done (for me it's a iron skillet with olive oil and butter, or just oil, or just butter ... ).


Left over baked potatoes get pretty much the same treatment. I peal them, dice the skins, cube the main part, smash them up with a bit of 1/2 & 1/2, then do as I did above.

Since I skipped breakfast, and have some baked potatoes in the fridge, .... topped with a over easy egg .... Excuse me.

What is this thing you called "leftover" mashed potatoes?
I have never seen such a creature in my fridge.

I'll eat anything containing potatoes AND cheese.
Thank you again Ol Blue

I just saw a version of this recipe that was finished in the oven instead of the skillet. After the potatoes were smashed they were diizzled with oil and put in a 450 degree oven, I like yours better and plan to cook it soon!

The oven method would be nice if you needed to make a lot. I prefer to use the skillet then heat up my oven.

Uh, now I have to talk the wife into letting me order some Peppadew, unless someone has an idea where I can get them locally in Chicago. I have to think they are around here somewhere, LOL.

They sell them in a jar in the delicatessen section of some supermarkets.

Substitution for Pepadews are red Anaheim chilies if that helps.
