Boil potatoes in their skins until done. Peel while still warm, then mash. Stir in the feta, onions, dill, egg, and lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste. Cover and chill.
Divide into small balls, flatten slightly, and dredge in the flour. Heat the oil and fry until golden brown on both sides.
Good when served with sour cream.

This is a fantastic way to make use of your leftover mashed potatoes. I used skin-on mash because it tastes more like a loaded baked potato, and it also has extra fiber! These patties are creamy on the inside and crispy on the outside. It's a great way to turn something old into something fantastically new!

*I used 3 egg whites so they'd be lighter and crispier, but you can swap this for 1 whole egg.
Times like this when food prices are rising I am so glad for the simple and thrifty dishes my mother and grandmother taught me. One that I always loved and decided to put a new twist on is leftover mashed potato cakes.
These are very tasty. I made them with chicken and cheese.
In skillet, heat oil. Add remainder of ingredients together and make into patties. Place into skillet, turn over when patty turns golden. Do the same on the other side.
