Source: Good Housekeeping 2000 Holiday Best
Serves: 4 (makes 8 patties)

2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 large egg
1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne (or up to 1/4 tsp)
2 tablespoons olive oil
Parsley sprigs for garnish

Onto sheet of waxed paper, measure eight 1/4 cup portions of mashed potatoes. With damp hands, shape each portion into 2 1/2 inch round patty. With dry hands, lightly coat patties with flour.

Lightly beat egg in pie plate. On clean sheet of waxed paper, combine bread crumbs, salt and cayenne. Dip each patty in egg and then in bread crumb mixture to coat both sides.

In nonstick 12" skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat until hot. Add patties and cook 5 minutes. Turn patties over, add remaining oil and cook 5 minutes longer or until lightly browned on both sides.
