About 2-3 cups left over mashed potatoes
3 to 4 ounces cream cheese
2 tablespoons sour cream
2 scallions, very finely chopped
1 egg, lightly beaten
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon butter

Heat potatoes to soften. Soften cream cheese in a microwavable bowl and microwave the cream cheese for 20 seconds on high. Add to the potatoes along with sour cream, scallions, egg, salt and pepper, to taste. Mash potatoes to
combine mixture. Heat the oil and butter in nonstick skillet over medium heat. Drop 2-inch
mounds of potatoes into skillet and gently press down to flatten a bit. Crisp potatoes until deeply golden on each side, about 7 to 8 minutes total.
Mixture makes 8 golden cakes.
