Has anyone else had these or made these? We were talking about mashed potatoes at work, and I said my family loved leftover mashed potatoes that I fried. I grew up with them.

Pan fried?

We called them potato pancakes.

I haven't had them before but it absolutely sounds like something I would LOVE! Can you give me a few hints, like do you add anything extra to them?

In my family we mix in a little flour, salt and pepper, shape them into patties and they get fried in bacon grease the next morning. Don't judge me.

Its how my grandma did it so.....

They are so good.

Yes, we mix them with the leftover veggies all mashed in, Bubble and Squeak is what they call it in England. Traditionally the veggies are cabbage/Brussels Sprouts but we aren't huge fans so we add the carrots/brocolli etc.
I serve mine with sausages.

Yes, my sweet Nana made them all the time when I lived with her while I was going to university. She added egg, milk and onion, and called them "potato pats".

My dad always makes these, but doesn't add anything to them, other than sometimes some extra salt or other spice.

I grew up with them. We called it boxty which is I believe the traditional Irish name. It is one of the few things I can actually make.

We made them like you, just fried in some butter. I can't remember the last time I made them though. And, of course now I am craving mashed potatoes.

I've never done this in my own home, however. Not sure why not. Maybe thought my DH would think it weird?

Shape then dredge in GF flour, salt, pepper and garlic. Dip that in an egg wash. Then dip in GF breadcrumbs and then fry til brown and crispy.

We call those potato pancakes. Add an egg, some cheese, or leftover meat. Or any veggie on hand.

My all time favorite meal. My mom would put a little cheese in the middle, dredge in flour, s&p,, and then pan fry in butter and oil. So good!

mmm...potato cakes!!! Shape cold mashed potatoes into a patty. Carefully dredge on both sides with seasoned flour. Heat a bit of oil & butter in a skillet & panfry until browned on one side. Flip it over & brown the other side. Crispy on the outside, creamy in the middle! Sprinkle with shredded cheddar & sometimes dip in ketchup.

Came on to write a very similar post. Best bubble and squeak ever is the one served on Boxing Day with all the left over Christmas veg including the sprouts chopped up small, served with some ham. Yum.

In Newfoundland we make a 'boiled dinner' which is basically corned beef and cabbage but with salt (naval) beef instead of corned beef. Fried up the next day, we call it 'fried dinner' - obviously, we are know for originality in naming things.

In my family, we typically include cabbage, turnip, carrots and peas pudding and sauteed onions with the mashed potatoes.

When people say 'potato pancake' do they mean that they are formed into a pancake shape? To me, that's a different animal. Fried dinner/bubble and squeak is more of a hash.

I tend to think of a potato pancake as being more of a central European food which is made of shredded potatoes.

Fried mashed potatoes is slightly different in that there is no (or very little) shredded potatoes involved.

I am willing to bet that just about every nation with lots of potatoes in their diet (Poland, Germany, Ireland) has some version of them. Because they are delicious, cheap and a great way to use up leftovers!

We used to have these on Boxing Day as well. My Mom made them in wiener shapes, and called them "Schneckenudeln" even though they were not noodles. They were just leftover mashed potatoes mixed with egg, milk, salt, and pepper. I can't recall if she put onions in, but she might have. I'm hungry now!

The only time we do this is after Thanksgiving. We make potato pancakes with the leftovers (adding turkey and stuffing to them & coating them in flour) and fry them up. Got the idea off of Food Network, and they are so good! I'm sure they are fattening, so we only do it once year!

LOVE LOVE LOVE Fried Mashed Potatoes. My Mom would make them for breakfast. Fry them in the leftover bacon grease, and then cook a dippy egg and place it on top. Then you just chop the egg up in the taters and YUMMMMMYYY!!!

LOVE IT!
