Hash Browns - From Mashed Potatoes

(4 servings)

  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 1 large egg - beaten
  • 1 onion - finely diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
Beat the egg in a small bowl. In a medium bowl, mix together egg and onion with mashed potatoes. Add salt and pepper as you desire.

At a medium setting, heat olive oil in a medium size frying pan. Scoop the potato mixture into the frying pan in 4 inch circles, pat with a spatula to flatten the mounds to approximately 1/2 to 1 inch thick. Cook until bottom is browned. Flip the patty over and brown the other side.

You can't beat this one for taste and texture. Delicious!
