  Cold mashed potatoes 2 1⁄4 Cup (36 tbs) (or 1 prepared packet of instant mashed potatoes, any flavor--chilled)
  Eggs 1 , well beaten
  All purpose flour/Self rising flour 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Chopped dried onions 2 Tablespoon
  Snipped parsley 1 Tablespoon
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon (or peanut oil, canola oil, etc)

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine mashed potatoes, beaten egg, flour, dried onions and parsley. Mix well.
2. Place a skillet on flame and heat olive oil in it. Watch the oil very carefully, and do not let it smoke.
3. Spoon a portion of the potato mixture into the hot oil until you fill the skillet. The oil should be hot enough for the cakes to sizzle nicely.
4. Smooth out each potato cake roughly into a circular shape. Cook until nice and brown. Flip and cook on the other side until done.
5. Remove cakes from the skillet and place them on paper towel to drain.

6. Garnish with parsley and serve hot.
