Italian potato Cakes

Thanks to my Mom who never wasted anything! Mom would use leftover mashed potatoes and season them to her liking and made Italian potato cakes.

2 cups of Mashed leftover potatoes (or potatoes you made the night before for this purpose)
3 tablespoons of canola oil
1/2 cup of flour
1/8 teaspoon of ground pepper
1/2  teaspoon of Mrs. Dash Italian melody seasoning

Divide your mashed potatoes into 1/2 inch patties.  Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot.

Mix the flour, pepper, and Mrs. Dash in a pie dish.  Coat the potato patties in the flour mixture,  Add the potato cakes to the pan and lower the heat to medium-low.  Cook until the potato cakes are golden about 15 minutes on each side.   Once golden add to serving dish. 

Season once cooked with more pepper, salt optional.
