Panko-Crusted Mashed Potato Patties

These are simple to make and quite a nice change from regular mashed potatoes.

All you need are seasoned left over mashed potatoes (not too whipped and creamy or they will fall apart--the lumpy ones work best for this),

 a beaten egg to dip the potato patty in and some bread crumbs (I used Panko). I also did not have leftover potatoes, so I just made some earlier in the day and refrigerated.

Fry them in a butter/oil mixtuer until golden on both sides.  YUM!

A nice crunchy celerytini with a little cream cheese herb dip was the vegetable.

I also finished my metallic runner project.  This is the block I ended up making:
I made 12 similar blocks. You can click here to go to my sewing/quilting blog to see the project I finished Saturday morning.

We ended up going out of town Saturday and did not get back until Sunday at 1:00 p.m.  It is so wonderful to be empty nesters and able to get away whenever we feel like it.  Once the work week is over, the next two days are ours to do whatever we please.  So when I got an 8:00 a.m. call from a friend who wanted us to hang out with her that night, we took one look at the cold wet day and decided to get away for the whole night.
After getting home Sunday, I cooked for two hours  making advance meals for the week--grilled chicken breasts, chicken noodle soup, pasta salad and egg salad.  By then I had no time or energy to go outside and cut down the Sedum. So that project is still hanging over my head. I am hoping to get to it after work this week.


  1. set a place for me! I'll be over with my appetite!!!

  2. Oh my, those potato patties look there a place for me as well at your table?
    Happy you chose to go away..the garden work will be there for you another day!

  3. I make these quite often with leftovers. Sounds like you had a good time. The sedums will wait.

  4. My grandmom used up her mashed potatoes like this all the time, but she didn't bread them. Yummy!
    I'm glad you made your lovely autumn table runner work for you too.

  5. those potatoes do sound yummy...sounds like a good weekend Zoey...

  6. My hubby would LOVE these. I have never tried the Panko before but this is the 2nd blog that I have seen it mentioned on in the last few days.

    Glad you were able to get away and enjoy yourself- xo Diana

  7. Those patties look like they would be much easier to fry up with the coating on them too. Will have to try that next time.
