Mashed Potato Patties.....(my family loves these treats)
2 cups mashed potatoes (leftovers are great for this recipe)
1 egg, beaten
1 onion, minced
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. white pepper
2-3 Tbsp. olive oil
Mix together mashed potatoes, beaten egg and onion in a medium bowl. Add salt and pepper and stir.
Over medium heat, heat olive oil in a medium size nonstick frying pan. Drop about 1/4 cup of the potato mixture into the frying pan, patting it into 4 inch circles that are 1/2" thick.
Cook until bottom is browned and crisp, about 3-4 minutes. Carefully turn the patty over and cook the second side until brown and crisp, 3-4 minutes. Serve with ketchup or salsa.
