Mashed Potato Corn Fritters

Leftover mashed potatoes. They taste great reheated, but I decided to get a little creative with them and see if I could make something different. Fritters are a Southern favorite, and these were just as big a hit. We ate them as a side dish to dinner.

Printer Friendly Version: Mashed Potato Corn Fritters


  • Leftover mashed potatoes (About 2 Cups)
  • Frozen corn (I used ¼ Cup in this particular batch)
  • Handful of corn meal (This is a thickener, if batch seems to watery add a bit more)
  • 2 Eggs
  • Chopped green onion
  • Garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Oil for frying
  1. Using a fork (I used the fork to mix the entire recipe), break up the leftover mashed potatoes.
  2. Mix in corn, green onion, and eggs.
  3. Mix in corn meal and seasonings.
  4. Drop forkfuls or spoonfuls of batter into hot oil, press down to spread them out a bit (so they are kind of flat).
  5. When edges start to become golden, flip the fritter and allow the other side to cook.
  6. Place fritter on paper towel and season once again with some salt and pepper.
  7. Enjoy!
