What Do I Do With Leftover Mashed Potatoes? A: Salmon Potato Cakes

Next to turkey, mashed potatoes seem to be in abundance after the holidays. Except if you live in the South, and then there are always leftover mashed potatoes around. We all know at least three different recipes for leftover turkey, but what do you do with leftover mashed potatoes? The answer is salmon potato cakes.

Salmon Potato Cakes - makes 12 patties
  • 1 (14 3/4 oz.) can salmon
  • 2 c. prepared mashed potatoes
  • 2 eggs whites
  • 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • ½ bag of saltine crackers
  • Oil for frying
  1. Debone salmon and add to bowl.
  2. Add mashed potatoes
  3. Add egg whites
  4. Add Italian seasoning
  5. Smash saltine crackers into fine crumbs, add to all other ingredients and mix all together.
  6. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
  7. Form mixture into 1/4 cup patties and fry 2-3 minutes on each side - or until golden brown.

I add ketchup as a dipping sauce for my girls. Enjoy!
