“It's the end of the week and you have leftover Mashed potatoes and leftover rice! Combine them into these tasty treats.Made in the oven with just a touch of olive oil spray to keep the fat down. I didn't add any seasonings because the mashed potatoes and rice was well seasoned along with using seasoned bread crumbs. But do add some if your left overs were bland. This will work with any mashed potato form russets, sweet potato, to red potatoes and try leftover arborio, jasmine, basmati to brown rice. This makes a great side or make mini ones for appetizers.”
