Leftover Mashed Potato Patties


1 cup leftover mashed potatoes
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 green onion, chopped (divided)
1/2 tsp homemade garlic powder
1/2 tsp homemade onion powder
2 TBS evaporated milk or cream
2 TBS butter
1 TBS oil

kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste
chopped chives, for garnish
sour cream, for garnish

Heat a skillet to medium, and add the butter and canola oil. Mix the egg and mashed potatoes together and then add the flour, baking powder; mixing well.

Finally stir in half of the chopped green onion and cream (milk will work too). Mix well. Shape out patties with your hands and place in skillet. Brown on both sides. Serve with sour cream and the remaining onion on top.

You may also add chives and Parmesan cheese and served them with sour cream on the side. Or you may add cheddar cheese and chopped crisp bacon – possibilities are endless.
