  • 3/4 cup dry bread crumbs, divided
  • 1 egg, beaten

Method: 
Mix mashed potatoes with shredded Parmesan. Add half of bread crumbs, egg, green onions and parsley to the potato mixture. Stir to mix well and set aside. Form potato mixture into 4-inch cakes about 1/2-inch thick. Mix remaining bread crumbs and flour together. Coat both sides of potato cakes with bread crumb mixture.

Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. The oil is ready when you drop a small amount of flour and crumb mixture and it sizzles in the pan. Fry potato cakes, 4 to 5 minutes per side, until light brown and crispy. Drain potato cakes and pat with a paper towel to remove excess oil. Serve warm with applesauce or chive oil.
