Mashed Potato Cakes

Mashed Potato Cakes

Of all the new recipes I've made recently, these Mashed Potato Cakes are one of the biggest hits in our kitchen. I made them for family dinner, but they were equally perfect in Kenya's lunch box for school the next day. I find most kids love to eat anything they can hold in their little hands, so these little cakes are a special treat. They're delicious served on their own, but when I served them with a side of apple sauce, Kenya the fun of eating them seemed to double for Kenya.
