Cooking Time: 6-8 min Servings: 6
1 ½ c grated raw potatoes
1 small grated onion
1 c all-purpose flour
1 c leftover mashed potatoes
1 tablespoon milk
½ teaspoon paprika
salt and pepper to taste
optional garnish: thinly sliced green onions or chives
Toss the grated potatoes and onion with flour in a large bowl. Don’t overmix, or they will get gluey.
Gently stir in mashed potatoes until just combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, milk and paprika; gently mix into the potatoes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Drop in the potato mixture, forming patties about 2 inches in diameter. Fry on both sides until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Serve warm garnish, if using, and with eggs and sausage for a full Irish breakfast.
