Boo-Boo’s Potato Cakes

My husband’s grandmother was part Choctaw Indian and she was a wonderful cook and teacher.  On the occasion when we had left over mashed potatoes, she would make Potato Cakes the following day.

2 eggs

4 cups cold mashed potatoes

1 finely chopped onion

1/4 cup flour

8 tablespoons butter

Salt and Pepper

Beat the eggs and mix thoroughly into the mashed potatoes; add onion.  Form into patties about 1 inch thick.  Melt butter into pan and fry over medium heat until golden brown.
