Everyone knows mashed potatoes (well, now you do!) are one of my all-time favorite foods! Have you ever met anyone who doesn't love mashed potatoes? I truly don't think I have. And turning them into cheese and onion mashed potato patties is a delicious way to use leftover mashed potatoes!
My mom would make me a version of these when I was little. So, when she recently suggested I try making them, I was all for it. And I'm so glad she did.
You can't go wrong with traditional mashed potatoes, but turning them into mashed potato patties is a delicious twist on the traditional form. You will not be disappointed!
A lot of people have been regrowing their green onions lately (myself included) so I figured this is another good way to use them up.
The ultimate comfort food in patty form with lots of ooey-gooey cheese, a mix of onions, so much flavor, and it feels like a warm hug for your mouth (if that's a thing?).
These will become a staple in your kitchen and you'll be looking for any excuse to make them — not that you need one! They're a good recipe to have on hand after holidays, too. I can't think of a better way to use leftover mashed potatoes!
If you make these, please leave a review and your comments down below!
Hope you love them!
