Loaded Mashed Potato Cakes from Just Putzing Around the Kitchen

So many options, so little motivation to cook. I was getting frustrated and just about to give up and eat leftover sushi from last night when I remembered a recipe I saw on FoodGawker a couple months ago: mashed potato cakes. Not only did the cakes look delicious, but the recipe also seemed ridiculously simple — just mix some leftover mashed potatoes (or, instant mashed potatoes in my case) with bread crumbs, cheese, and an egg, shape it into patties, and pan fry. In just 30 minutes I had a plateful of fragrant golden disks that were crisp on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside, and full of cheesy, garlicky, potato-y good flavor. Served with a little sour cream and some bacon bits, they made for a very satisfying lunch.
