Potato Cakes

2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
1 egg beaten
1 tablespoon flour
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Combine in a mixing bowl: potatoes, beaten egg, flour, milk, and onion. Mix well. Heat vegetable oil in a heavy skillet. Use a big spoon to scoop potato mixture and drop it into the hot oil. Brown on both sides, turning once. Serve hot.

The original recipe calls for two tablespoons cream, but milk works fine.

Another great Easy Recipe

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
