This month, Elizabeth of Elizabeth's Kitchen is hosting Turquoise Lemons' 'No Waste Food Challenge' and it was fortunate for me, she chose 'mashed potatoes' as the ingredient not to waste!
My first thought was that I would make gnocchi with the mash but I had some sausages and the red cabbage that I wanted to use and somehow I just didn't fancy gnocchi with that, so instead I made some homely potato cakes.
The quantities in this recipe are approximate, adjust depending on the quantity of mash you have left over.

I've made potato cakes before, but usually they fall apart, I think the little bit of flour and the fridge chilling was the key to them holding together, you could add other things to the mash, but no big pieces or they will definitely fall apart!
