    What kind do you want? I make latkes That uses shredded potatoes. Just shred your potatoes add an egg and a tablespoon flour season to taste drop by spoonful in hot olive oil fry til golden on both side. Or you can use left over mashed potatoes same as other with egg but dredge the cake in flour before frying. Season to taste.

    Quote:To me the best latkes are made this way. Serve with sour cream.

    For leftover mashed potatoes or grits I just slice them thick, while cold, and fry as is, for breakfast, with fried eggs, of course.
