Hello, pretty friends! Happy Sunday! Hope you are enjoying this wonderful winter-break and all the Holiday things that the Season brings!

I went to do a bit of discount-shopping on the 26th and was met with a hoard of thousands others that decided to do the same thing! Darn it!
As I approached the Holiday-themed aisles, I realized that just about everything was gone. A big red sign that read “50% OFF on Holiday Decor” was the only fixture still standing. DAMN!

Then I went to Macy’s and bought a new dress. Shoes, too. I plan to look good on New Year’s Eve. Clonk!

Fingers crossed I won’t be lookin’ good just for my living room, you know what I’m sayin’?

However, IF for some odd reason I end up staying at home, my new fleece pj’s, yogurt dip and a bowl of these potato patties will be happening.

I have a loving relationship with things shaped into patties. Or fritters. Or meatballs! You know… Anything that needs shaping into a bite-size treat.
Well, this is more like a two-bites treat, but you understand.

Also? If you’re ever in need of spinach-recipes, stop by! I have LOTS!

Anywho!

As I was sitting there watching the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I was madly dipping these potato patties into yogurt and just inhaling them without coming up for air. They are just so darn good. Honest to Goodness. Or as my foreign Mom would say, Honestly God!

In actuality, all I really did here was combine some mashed potatoes with scrumptious goodies and fried ’em. Sometimes the simplest things are the most satisfying.
On the other hand, every kind of food benefits from some garlic, parmesan and spinach. You KNOW that’s the truth.

Also, good olive oil is always a smart move.  I love Star’s Olive Oil.

Another great thing about these patties? They can serve as a delicious side dish or as a spectacular appetizer at your NYE party.

No matter how you decide to serve them, the natural thing, of course, is to eat ’em.

ENJOY!

    I do a lot of Indian/American fusion. Made these minus the cheese and added garam masal and powdered red chili. Fantastic! Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Kyle Hobart

    Mine turned out burnt on outside and mush on inside. Taste was great but how do you get the perfect Browning on these?

  3. Mary Kay

    I made these tonight and WOW, they are so good! Followed recipe except only used 1/2 onion. I would recommend 1/2 the recipe, if you don’t want freeze them and are feeding only a few. I didn’t pay attention to the serving size, but I had 21 patties right on target. If you haven’t ever froze anything like this, place on a plate or pan and put in the freezer for maybe an hour or so, then place in your bag for freezing. This makes them much easier to handle. Thanks for the great recipe!!

    Any guesses as to how many cups of leftover mashed potatoes this works out to be? I’m thinking these would be a perfect “post-Thanksgiving” recipe to try?

    1. Leon

      I’m reading this from a mobile device so apologies if I missed something.

      What do you mean by prepared potatoes? Do you boil them first or do you make them first?

      Secondly, why is there this irritating video on the top right of a mobile screen. Your recipe is not visible due to that.

      1. Katerina Petrovska

        Hi!
        Yes, the potatoes have to be boiled, first, and then you mash them together with the milk. This is a good recipe for leftover mashed potatoes.

    I kept running over this formula over on Pinterest and needed to make a trip to tell how tasty it looks. I can hardly wait to try it out this end of the week!

  6. carenician

    simple as freezing mashed potatoes. You just need to transfer the cooled patties into freezer bags, release all air in the bag and seal it tightly. I hope this helps!

  7. Kristi Rimkus

    I ran across this recipe over on Pinterest and had to stop by to tell how delicious it looks. I can’t wait to give it a try this weekend!

    Hi – fantastic recipe. Quick, easy, healthy! Thank you. There’s nothing wrong with your print link. I’ve just printed it off (one page, no problem) using the link next to the actual recipe. Looks like Maralyn has most likely used the print link normally found at top of page, which would probably print the entire article if actual page number not specified..

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      So happy you enjoyed them!! I have never baked these, always fried them, but you could try. Preheat to 400 – place the patties on a wire rack set over a baking sheet (this will help to crisp them up a bit), bake 12 minutes on one side, flip them over and continue to bake for another 10 to 12 minutes, or until browned and done. Let me know if you try that, and if you liked it! 🙂 Thank YOU!

        Just got an air fryer and I’m guessing I can use these guidelines? Unless I missed someone else comment on using an air fryer?

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi Randi! No, I have not so I can’t say for sure that it would work, but it should be as simple as freezing mashed potatoes. You just need to transfer the cooled patties into freezer bags, release all air in the bag and seal it tightly. I hope this helps!

    2. Maralyn Owen

      I printed out this recipe and it took SEVENTEEN PAGES of paper for one recipe!!! Shameful!!! And it said “Printer friendly” NOT!!!

      1. Katerina Petrovska

        Hi Maralyn! I’m soooo sorry that happened!! My apologies, please. I just tried printing it and I only had 1 page. When you printed it, did you click on the “PRINT” button located within the recipe box above, right underneath the picture of the recipe?

  9. Lucy Parissi

    These look so delicious! I think I will try them on my children who view spinach with great suspicion! I may substitute the potatoes with parsnips (avoiding potatoes at the moment) hope that will work!

  10. Tina @ Tina's Chic Corner

    The hubby is sick so we’re staying in for the night. 🙁 Hope you get a chance to wear that new dress outside the home. 😉
    I love making patties and these look super delicious.
    Have a happy new year!!
