I love experimenting with leftover foods. Since I abhor throwing away and wasting anything on my table, I try to salvage and serve whatever we left unfinished by creating new dishes out of it the next day.
I made too much mashed potato yesterday . Instead of tossing it in the bin, it landed in a sizzling pan filled with hot oil. Healthy? Definitely not, but it was so good, I might make extra portion of mashed potatoes every time!
2 cups cold mashed potatoes
2 cans of tuna , drained
1/2 cup Emmentaler cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
a handful of coriander leaves and parsley
salt and pepper
1 cup flour
1 cup bread crumbs
enough oil for frying
Mix mashed potato, tuna flakes, cheese, eggs, coriander , parsley, eggs salt and pepper.
Roll into small logs, balls or any shape of your fancy.
Roll logs in flour. Shake excess off.
Dip in beaten eggs.
Then toss in bread crumbs.
Heat enough oil in the pan like its your last day on Earth. Deep fry these babies without feeling overly guilty. Wait until they turn golden brown.
Serve pipping hot with your favourite dip.
