Mashed Potato Cakes

We took my sister down to Magee-Womens Hospital in Pittsburgh to see a genetics specialist. When my nephew was born he had Trisomy-13 which caused his heart to be enlarged on one side and we wanted to see if there was a possibility of this happening again. Fortunately we received good news and there is a 99% chance that this would never happen again. That was such a relief to hear.

I wanted to share another one of my favorite comfort foods. My mom would make this for us when we were growing up and it's still one of my favorites.

These are so simple. Take your left over mashed potatoes add and egg and mix. In a separate dish combine some gluten free flour (whatever you have on hand) and add salt and pepper to taste. Shape your potatoes into cakes and dredge in flour.

In a frying pan add butter and oil and heat until it almost smokes and then fry your potatoes until golden brown.

These are excellent with leftover garlic mashed potatoes.

Ya know....these are best when fried in grease from beef patties! LOL :D My great grandma used to make them! She'd make burgers, pull them out, fry the tates, pull them out, then add flour and butter and make a gravy! Bet we could use rice flour and make a pan gravy too! MMMM....I'm going to have to have this soon!!!!
