I remember when I was a kid my grandma used to always make what she called tator cakes. I have never made them as an adult, and in a friendly conversation, a friend sparked my curiosity as well as my taste buds! I longed for that deliciousness I remember from my child hood!!
For our Sunday lunch, we had a roast with mashed potatoes, carrots, purple hull peas, and of course mac and cheese. There were lots of mashed potatoes left over, so I thought since I was going to make barbecue out of the pork roast for left overs I could also recycle the mashed potatoes! So, that's just what I did.
It turned out pretty well. The kiddos loved them and I have a feeling that when they get home from school the remainder of the tator cakes will be gobbled up for their afternoon snack. Want the recipe? Well, here ya go. It's simple and I am pretty sure it'll be a hit with the entire family as a side dish, snack food, or as in our case, a great breakfast!
