What to do with a tub of left-over mashed taters?



chop some  pickled japs and shred some pepperjack.



mix the taters



get some seasoned flour  ( cayenne, paprika, s&p, chili powder,  which is also my flour recipe for anything I fry)  egg, and panko bread crumbs ready.



I found it easiest to form the balls in the flour then into the egg then into the crumbs then into a nice hot oil bath.







These things came out delicious!!!  you could put anything you want in them.  Next time they will definatly have bacon in them.

That's the exact same problem I have! LOL

My two girls will "snack" on my left over mashed potatos and gravy, after school. Then I come home and think "Hey! I have left over mashed potatos and gravy, I'll make a shepards pie for dinner"...... NOT!

I make a simpler version of these all the time (including this morning) with leftover instant taters.  I like the breading idea as well as the additional ingredients.  We usually just add some chopped, grilled onions...

Great post!  Somehow we gotta get some smoke on these (other than the smoked bacon & cheese!!)  Hmmmmm......
