Hi, skyy. I think pan-fried potato patties would probably work out better. Use warm liquid - the mixture will heat up faster. Make fairly dry mashed potatoes, form into patties the size you want, heat a couple of tbsp. oil in a skillet, and pan-fry I'd guess about 5-6 minutes per side till browned. I'm not sure you'd be able to brown them in the oven, unless you brushed them with oil and put them under the broiler. HTH.
Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.
