Sandra Lee's Fried Potato Cakes
Try These Crispy Sides
Leftover mashed potatoes from Thanksgiving? You have to try these!
In a shallow plate or pie dish, mix the bread crumbs with salt and pepper, to taste. In a large bowl, stir together the potatoes, cheese, egg, cayenne pepper, and salt and pepper to taste. Scoop out ¼ cup of the potato mixture and form it into a small patty. Gently press the patties into the seasoned bread crumbs, coating both sides, and set aside.
In a large skillet over medium heat, add the oil. When it is hot, add the potato cakes in 1 layer and cook until golden brown and crispy, about 2 minutes per side. Drain on brown paper and sprinkle with more salt and pepper while hot.
