Fried Potato Patties
Fried Potato Patties 2 cups cooked smashed potatoes ( plain, boiled and fork-smashed potatoes work best) 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese ( can substitute cheddar) 1 large egg, lightly beaten 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon onion powder or 2 tablespoons thin sliced green onions 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1 egg, lightly beaten 1 cup breadcrumbs 1/4-1/2 cup vegetable oil Combine first 7 ingredients; chill. Shape mixture into 6 patties. Dip each patty into lightly beaten egg then lightly coat with breadcrumbs. Heat vegetable oil and fry over medium heat until lightly browned, turning once. Tip: If you feel your potatoes are too watery, lightly dust with flour prior to dipping into the egg wash.
