To 4 cups of leftover mashed potatos add 1 egg and 2 T of flour. Mix
thoroughly. Form into into 3" patties, lightly dust with seasoned flour
(flour, salt, white pepper, paprika) and pan fry in butter til golden
brown on both sides. Serve with turkey in gravy.

I do it a little differently. I make 4 to 5 inch patties. I
don't season my flour - I season the potatoes with salt and
pepper before making patties . I fry them in bacon fat. I
serve them with fried eggs, tomatoes and bacon or sausage. It
is a breakfast thing in my family.

   Well, our mashed potatoes are usually salted enough that I don't feel 
like re-salting them.  I mix in an egg or two, make patties and fry in 
butter.  We like them quite well that way.

We sauté some diced onions in butter then mix the onions into the leftover
potatoes with some grated cheese.  Form into patties and fry on both sides.
Yum.  It's even better if you put the onions and cheese in the day before.

Or, you can mix in some leftover meatloaf and fry.  I wet my hands before
shaping the patties and it helps keep the potatoes from sticking.

As a general rule we make twice the amount of potatoes we think we'll need -
just so we can fry some up the next day.

I was about to respond the same thing to the original poster. I'm
surprised many people responded positively instead of asking why the
poster just does not ask his/her mother. I'm getting too cynical...must
take a break from RFC.

She wont tell me.

But I was able to figure it out. I put butter in  the frying pan, dumped some
mashed potatoes in and let them cook.
Added cheddar on top and smothered with tabasco when it was done  (I once
learned the hard way not to add tabasco while the food was still cooking...)
