Shayna, thanks for the turkey/potato cake recipe. I have a small amount of leftover turkey so I am going to try it tomorrow. The recipe was made even more special with your kind words about your husband and father-in-law, it was very touching to read. Very lovely and thank you again for sharing!

My Mom taught me how my Polish Grandmother made them.

I make mine from grated raw potatoes and onion. I add eggs, floiur, baking soda, pepper and salt. I drain the grated potato mixture in a colander. I cook them in an electric fry pan(so I can control the heat) at 350. The edges need to be really cooked before they are flipped.

Dad loves them plain and will eat them as soon as they are cooked. Everyone else is lucky to get any. My sister likes applesauce on them, sour cream for me.

I never had them from mashed potatoes. It sounds good also.

Mary, this is how my mother made them. how wonderful!! I've also tried thru the years to use the frozen 'grated' home fries,,,,so much easier, but NEVER as good.

My dad took leftover mashed potatoes shaped them into paddies then coated the outside with flour. He cooked them in bacon grease until they were golden brown! They were delicious! I'll have to make them soon. Nice trip down memory lane for me!
