Fried Mashed Potato Patties

I can't say enough about this side dish. I love these Mashed Potato Patties.

My "Chicken" Fryer Skillet is 3 3/4" Deep and 11" in diameter.
We found this incredible vintage Cast Iron Skillet in an Antique Mall in Guthrie, Oklahoma
on our way to visit our family in Kansas. I also has a Lid.

Fried Mashed Potato Patties

Here's what you'll need:
A Large Deep Cast Iron Skillet. I have a vintage "Chicken Fryer" Cast Iron Skillet.

Vegetable Oil, enough to fill your Skillet 1/3 of the way up.
2 1/2 C Mashed Potatoes
1/2 C Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1 TBS of Sliced Green Onions + additional for Garnish.
1/2 tsp Tabasco Hot Sauce
1/2 tsp Salt
1 Large Egg, beaten.
1 - 8 oz. Container of Sour Cream

In a Skillet on Medium High Heat:
Heat to frying temperature. 300 - 350 degrees. Use a Candy Thermometer or test by dropping a bit of Dough into the Oil to determine the correct temperature.  An easy way is to add 1 Kernel of Popping Corn, and it reaches the perfect temperature when it Pops.

In a Mixing Bowl:
Mix well to form a Dough.
If the Potatoes are runny, add a bit of Flour to create the Dough.

Use a 1 3/4" Cookie Scoop.
Form into a Patty by hand.

Place a few at a time in the Hot Oil and cook for 2 - 3 minuter on each side.

Remove to Paper Towels to drain.
Transfer to a Serving Platter.

Serve hot, garnished with Sour Cream and additional Sliced Green Onions.

Peace in the Kitchen!
