Leftover Parmesan Mashed Potato Patties

These parmesan mashed potato patties are so good, you’ll want to make sure you have leftovers next time you make mashed potatoes!!

I love making these patties whenever I have leftover mashed potatoes so I don’t feel like I’m eating the same thing the next day. Serving size will change depending on how much mashed potatoes you have leftover. I wrote this recipe assuming you have half a batch of leftover skinny garlic mashed potatoes.

This works best with cold mashed potatoes.

  • 2 2/3 cups cold leftover skinny garlic mashed potatoes
  • 2 large egg whites or 1/4 cup egg beaters
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/3 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • cooking spray (I used Smart Balance)


Preheat the oven to 425°. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

Fill a small bowl with egg whites, whisking well. Fill another bowl with the breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese, mix to combine.

Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup, form potatoes into 8 patties. Brush patties with egg whites (or you can use your hands to spread egg on), then dip into breadcrumb mixture. Place patties onto the baking sheet and spray the top with more cooking spray.

Bake for 15 minutes, or until the bottom becomes golden brown; flip and cook an additional 10-12 minutes, until golden on both sides.

Makes 8 patties.
