Left-Over Potato Cakes

40 mins (cooking 40)

I love my leftovers. I go out of my way to make too much so I have thigns for future meals and to play around with. I think Thanksgiving is the Alpha and Omega of holidays for leftovers. I came up with this recipe as an easy meal that uses leftover prepared ingredients. It can also be adjust to meet your tastes. Just remember that the potates are prepared mashed potatoes (with butter, milk, etc.) You can use any kind of flavors you like so don't worry if you just made plain-jane mashed potatoes or you made cheddar mash with bacon and sour cream. If you don't have left over stuffing or do not want to use it just replace the amount with more potatoes. You can add in meat, cheese, etc as you want also. My husband topped his cakes with leftover turkey and poured some turkey gravy over it and loved it (he went back for 3rds)
