A different, very tasty way to serve potatoes.


  • 5 medium potatoes
  • 4 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped, green and white parts
  • 3 Tbsp fresh dill weed, chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • flour for dredging
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil


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!


Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 2 strips bacon
  • 1 1/2 cup mashed potatoes
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 egg whites (or 1 egg)*
  • up to 1 Tbsp flour (optional)
  • sour cream for serving
  • chopped green onion for serving
  • shredded cheese for serving

*I used 3 egg whites so they'd be lighter and crispier, but you can swap this for 1 whole egg.



  1. Cook the bacon strips until crispy. Set aside. Keep the rendered fat to cook the patties in.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the leftover mashed potatoes, shredded cheese, Parmesan cheese, and egg whites.
  3. Depending on how creamy your leftover mash is, you might want to add a bit of flour. You want to be able to make patties without them falling apart. Add as much flour as needed.
  4. Shape into small patties and heat up the pan to medium heat.
  5. Add patties to the pan and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side, until browned and crisp.
  6. Crumble the crisp bacon strip. Place patties on a platter and top with sour cream, cheese, bacon bits and green onions.

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.

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.
