Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

Cheesy Potato Patties

I really like potatoes.
Baked, fried, mashed, boiled, roasted, hashbrowned, french fried... you name it.
I just like potatoes.
A while back, I shared my leftover mashed potatoes Potato Soup recipe.
Well, I have another recipe to use up leftover mashed potatoes, so I thought I'd share that with you too.

Looks yummy, right?
It is!

One thing I like about potato patties is that they are very versatile. You can add in different spices and ingredients to make them fit your meal. Are you making them for breakfast or brunch? I highly recommend crumbling some crisp bacon and mixing it in!
I'll bet they would be great alongside some biscuits and sausage gravy, too!

Looking for a lunch or dinner accompaniment? Add some herbs or sauteed, chopped veggies (zucchini, bell pepper, broccoli, etc.). You know, something that will compliment your main dish.

Potato patties are really easy to make too, so that is a bonus! Now grab your ingredients and a  good nonstick pan or a well seasoned iron skillet and let's get started.

Cheesy Potato Patties
(makes 12)

What You Need:
2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
1 egg
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 cup onion, finely diced
a little butter... or bacon grease... or oil
salt & pepper to taste

What You Do:

  1. Heat your pan to medium- medium high, and toss in your butter or bacon grease. Add your onion and saute it until it is tender.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, mix together your potatoes, egg, cheese and your cooked onion. Once it is well mixed, form it into 12 golf ball sized balls. Flatten each to about a half an inch thick.
  3. Add a little more butter or grease or oil to the pan and place the patties in the pan. (You may need to work in batches). Cook for about 4 minute on medium- medium high heat.
  4. Flip and cook another 4 minutes.
  5. Salt and pepper to taste and serve.
See! I told you it was easy!

What do you like to add to your potato patties?
What do you like to serve them with?
