Irish Potato Cakes!  I was literally in heaven the moment I tasted these Chef Concetta masterpieces.  And the fact that the recipe calls for leftover mashed potatoes makes me smile!  To mimic the so-called Most Interesting Man in the World – “I don’t often have leftover mashed potatoes, but when I do I make Irish Potato Cakes.”  Someone get me a t-shirt with this saying on it!!!
