Studded with greens and cheese and made with left-over mashed potatoes. These make a delicious and easy side. Makes about 8 pancake/patties
1 1/2cupsmashed potatoes
1cupthinly chopped brussel sproutor other greens
1-3clovesgarlic finely chopped
2/3cupor so grated parmesan or romano cheese-divided
2tbsevoo for frying
Throughly combine first four ingredients and half of the grated cheese in a bowl large enough to get your hands into without getting potato bits all over the counter.
Form the mixture into about eight patties and coat with the remaining grated cheese.
Pre-heat a medium frying pan or cast iron skillet on medium.
Add evoo to pan and swirl.
Fry up the patties four and a time, about four minutes a side. The secret to not having them fall apart is to leave plenty of room in the pan to get the spatula in and to not mess with them until they are good and brown and ready to flip. The less you mess the less the mess.
Can be held in a 275F oven for up to 30 minutes until ready to serve
Best served hot.
