Everyone has a dish their Mum/Nana/Female Matriarch figure made for them. Good or bad, it's a dish that we remember, and makes us feel like a kids again. For me it's these patties, made from leftover mashed potatoes and vegetables. My Mum would make these for us, telling us that her mother made them for her. As with most of these recipes, the amounts work on a little of this and a little of that, so just chuck stuff in a bowl.
2 cups mashed potatoes
1 cup peas and corn or any leftover meat and veg you have from last nights dinner, finely chopped.
salt and pepper
1/2 cup of grated cheese
Mix together in a bowl, until smooth-ish. Heat a non stick pan and spray with oil. Dollop the mixture into the pan and turn heat down to medium. Wait for bubbles to form on the surface, much the same as pancakes, then flip. Allow to cook for a further 2 minutes. Serve with some tomato sauce, and enjoy.
