Whenever I make mashed potatoes, I try to make more than I plan to eat. I say “try” because I can eat a ton of mashed potatoes.
ANYWAY, this one time I had some left over and this happened to it:
I added salt, pepper, and a little cornstarch to hold it together. Sometimes I add a little JustEgg for extra goodness. Sometimes onion powder.
So put half of the taters in a buttered skillet, layer in some cheese (vegan cheese for me), then put the rest of the taters over the top and smooth it over and seal the cheese in. When the cake is brown on one side, slide it out and put in more butter (vegan butter for me) and slide the cake back in (unbrowned side down, o’ course!) and cook it until that side is brown.
OMG, SO GOOD!
