leftover potato city

This was super fast and surprisingly tasty for a random fridge-raid fry.

  • Leftover mashed potato - about a cup. Mine was garlic :).
  • Handful pine nuts
  • 2 eggs
  • Tsp capers
  • Tbsp flour
  • Pepper, dried chilli flakes
  • Splash of olive oil
  • Rocket
  • Lemon juice

  1. Mix all the ingredients bar the last 3 together. I wished I'd been arsed to chop up the capers - so depends how lazy you feel.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and drop tablespoons of the mixture in and fry on both sides for a few minutes - make sure neither the heat nor the cakes are too high cos you need to make sure the egg is cooked in the middle.
  3. Bung 'em on a plate with the rocket, sprinkle with lemon juice.
