Make this potato patties recipe, and use this dish to accompany just about any thing else that you might be planning to make and serve at your dinner table for supper tonight. This potato patties recipe is a quick and easy one to make, but you do have to use leftover potatoes in order to make it up. So be sure that on one night you make double the amount of potatoes that you might normally cook, and then let those potatoes sit in the fridge until you want to use them for this recipe. You can add whatever other seasonings you might be using for the potatoes when you make them. If you add milk, butter, cream cheese, sour cream, or even other ingredients they will only enhance the flavors in the potato patties recipe when you make it up. The potatoes you make will likely last about three or so days in the fridge, so they can sit for a day or two, especially if you do not want potatoes two days in a row. Of course, you may have to hide them. In my house, potatoes in the fridge are fair game for snacks and other meals!
Potatoes are a very nutritious food, as well as an extremely versatile veggie. They are loaded with lots of vitamins and minerals as well as other things like fiber. All of these components are very important to our ongoing good health. Potatoes are also great because they can be seasoned in so many different ways. They are the most cultivated vegetable in the world, and no wonder. It grows easily, is loaded with nutrition, blends with just about every seasoning, and fills you up. Potatoes have more potassium in them than bananas, are easy to digest and can be eaten when people are ill and bring them plenty of good nutrition, and offer fiber, an important component in our daily food plan that too many of us overlook. So eat your potatoes; they are a great and filling food that goes well with just about anything that you are planning to make any night of the week.
This recipe is a quick and easy one and is very low in sugar. You could bump up the nutrition slightly by using olive oil that has just a teaspoon of butter added to it for frying up the potato patties, but other than that, just enjoy this great recipe, and serve them up with whatever other things you were planning for dinner tonight. These potato patties will also make a terrific snack, so you could make potatoes for dinner, and then mix up the leftover potatoes for the patties and wait until appetites get peckish before cooking them.
