- 2 cups mashed potatoes
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 onion, diced
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil, or as needed
Step 1: Mix mashed potatoes, flour, onion, egg, black pepper, and salt together in a bowl until it forms a batter consistency.
Step 2: Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Drop 4-inch circles of batter into hot oil. Cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining batter.
