What do you do with leftover mashed potatoes because if your house is anything like ours there are either not enough mashed potatoes or too many!
About two months ago at our regular Sunday dinner with Great Grandma there were leftovers and with a sigh we said to no one in particular what are we going to do with all these potatoes? Great Grandma look up at us and said salmon patties of course.
I do not remember salmon patties being part of my childhood and they were apart of Great Grandma’s childhood. Great Great Grandma a woman of her time never wasted anything and left over mashed potatoes became salmon patties the next day. Great Grandma talked about how the horse-drawn fish carter would come by once a week and her mother would pick out her salmon.
Using Great Grandma’s memory as guide we worked with the recipe and came up with a new family favourite. We like them so mush that we have been know to make mashed potatoes just for this recipe.
We freeze them and take them for lunch they can be eaten with a knife and fork or by hand when the situation calls for it.
- 2 cups mashed potatoes
- 2 cups fine bread crumbs (we used gluten free)
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup finely chopped green onion or cooking onion
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Mix everything together
- Make into patties and fry
