Spicy mashed potato patties
The holidays will be fast upon us, and in eager anticipation, I also take into account flavorful ways to recycle some of my favorite left-over foods. With advance thinking, I can get organized and enjoy my mashed potatoes twice as much for the holidays!
Luckily for me, my family is very fond of potatoes in all shapes and forms!
Here’s a fun way to make mashed potatoes do double duty with each dish being just as delicious, yet appealing and different.
Take your mashed potatoes, warm and pliable add the following:
3 finely-minced fresh garlic cloves
1 cup finely chopped cilantro, parsley and celery leaves.
In a separate bowl combine:
1/2 teaspoon Cajun spice
1 tablespoon celery salt
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon cumin powder
1/2 tablespoon salt
Mix all of the above dry ingredients in a cup and sift together, spread the mixture, using your hands into the herb-infused mashed potatoes and mold into medium sized patties; neither too thick or too thin, as you want to lessen cooking time, thus using previously prepared mashed potatoes.
In another bowl mix one cup of flour adding the same dry ingredients per above again to flower mixture, set aside.
Preheat your cooking oil on medium low.
Take 2 room temperature eggs, or as long as they sit for a few minutes, lightly beating with a fork, season with salt and paprika and Cajun seasoning.
Dip your patties, both sides in flour mixture with one hand; in egg wash, both sides, with another hand, or utensil and fry in skillet until a desirable color is reached; lightly flatten your patties if necessary; cook approximately 6-8 minutes and serve with salsa side or Louisiana Hot Sauce.
