Loaded Fried Mashed Potatoes Are The Best Way To Hack Your Leftovers

Fried mashed potatoes are the best part about Thanksgiving leftovers. #easy #recipe #frying #fried #mashedpotatoes #potato #thanksgiving #leftovers #cheddar #cheese

Ingredients:
2 1/2 c. mashed potatoes
1 large egg, beaten
1 tbsp. finely chopped chives, plus more for garnish
Vegetable oil, for frying
1/2 c. shredded cheddar
1/2 tsp. hot sauce
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
All-purpose flour (optional)
1 Sour cream, for serving

Instructions:

  1. First, in a large skillet over medium heat, add enough oil to fill pan a third of the way up. In a large bowl, stir potatoes, cheese, egg, chives, hot sauce, and salt until combined. (If your mashed potatoes are a little runny, add flour one tablespoon at a time until you can form dough balls.) 
  2. Then, working in batches, scoop heaping tablespoons of mixture and drop into hot oil. Fry until golden on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. 
  3. Next, top potatoes with sour cream and chives before serving.
  4. Serve and enjoy!
