Winds too high to fly today, so I came home for a late b'fast.
Took last night's mashed potatoes, formed them into a patty,
fried them in butter and then laid a fried egg on top.
NOt bad at all. - Mike

They are also good if you bread them before frying.

Don't even need that if you can't be bothered. The crumbs
stick to the potatoes quite well and the potatoes patties
don't fall apart.

Try this recipe with leftover mashed spuds. Regular onions work fine but 
sweet onions make it even better.

@@@@@ Now You're Cooking! Export Format

Vadalia Onion Chowder

none

4 slices bacon -chopped bite sized; -not crumbled
2 tbsp olive oil; or use bacon fat
4  vadialia onions; sliced
2-3 cups mashed potatoes (leftovers); I used 3
4 cloves garlic; minced
2 boxes chicken stock (approx 30 oz)
2 cups corn kernels (I used 2 cans)
2  bay leaf; (optional)
1/4 tsp dried thyme
  fresh ground black pepper; LOTS
  salt to taste
  sour cream; see note*

Fry the bacon crisp. drain well the bacon and reserve. (Used later.)
Heat oil in large pot. low medium  to med heat.
Make the onions bite sized, add to pot, cook till tender, about 10 min.
Mince the garlic, add to pot, cook 1 minute or so more.
Add broth, potatoes, corn, bay leaves, thyme.  Bring the soup to a boil.
Remove the pot from the heat.  Remove the bay leaves.  Season with pepper.
Add sour cream.
*Note add the sour cream just before serving by the tablespoon per bowl.
This freezes better without the sour cream.
Serve in soup bowls, and sprinkle crumbled bacon on top.
this recipe needs  more garlic than called for.
Note: I just stirred the crumbled bacon in with the whole batch.
Don't be shy with the garlic.
I used some turkey Stock in with this  (excellent.)
Used 5 or 6 sweet onions
6-7 potatoes served as mashed.
I Didn't have vidalia onions so i used locally grown sweet onions instead.
I added a grated carrot for colour.
I think some brocolli florets might be  nice as well

Add some flour and an egg. Make a mirapoix (sp) make a patty. Put some of
the veggies on top: cover it with another patty: brush with an egg wash
and put it under the broiler to heat through

They are also good Michael if you add some onions and  flour to it and
fry it in butter.  Then put some strawberry jam on it.  Yummy!

Yup, cept I usually add a beaten egg to the potatoes, dust them with seasoned
flour and fry them in butter. Great with chopped up turkey heated in leftover
gravy.

Absolutely on the potato "pancakes".  Add an egg, some diced onion and
garlic if desired, form into patties and fry.  Never thought to put a fried
egg on top :-)
