I love finding ways to use holiday leftovers. These potato cakes use the mashed potatoes, stuffing and breadcrumbs. To go all out, add meat and cheese. —Jeri Psikal, Norman, Oklahoma

  • 3 cups mashed potatoes (with added milk and butter)
  • 1 cup biscuit/baking mix
  • 1 cup cooked stuffing
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup French-fried onions, crushed
  • 3/4 cup dry bread crumbs


  1. In a large bowl, mix potatoes, baking mix, stuffing and eggs until blended. Refrigerate, covered, 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°. In a shallow bowl, mix onions and bread crumbs. Shape 1/4 cupfuls of the potato mixture into 3/4-in.-thick patties. Dip patties in crumb mixture, patting to help coating adhere.
  3. Transfer to two greased 15x10x1-in. baking pans. Bake 35-40 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
