We have had them by themselves, with eggs and more bacon, and hamburgers. Your idea tractorchick sounds yummy. We are having them tonight. I think we might do them with burgers tonight. I love em warmed up for lunch at work the following day. If I think about it I will take a pic or two LOL

When you talk about potato cakes you may be giving away some our ages. I also remember having them when I was a kid, left over potatoes from the day before. If you don't leave them in the skillet long enough they won't be warm enough inside.
You can have them with about anything you would like, eggs, steak, burgers, add some salsa, a little sat, pepper, ham, the list goes on to your likings.
George helped y'all with what to do with them, just use some imagination and add what ever strikes your fancy.

Ahhh, food from my childhood. We used to have potato cakes, but it did require that we had left over mashed potatos. We also had ham croquets, which was ham chunks fried with the potatoes. Salmon cakes, I've managed to get my wife to cook them as an alternative to a constant barrage of chicken.
We also used to have fried fish for breakfast, Herring perhaps? Whatever it was, apparently it became hard to find, as we rarely had it after I grew up, and I asked about it once.

Whenever my Mom made mashed potatoes she doubled the batch. Potato pancakes for Sunday breakfast. With a dollop of sour cream.

Didn't have them as a child. I certainly will make extra mashed when I do next time. Sounds real good.

Take leftover mashed taters, add one to two eggs (depending on quantity of taters)
Add seasonings (salt, pepper, garlic, cooked diced onions, cooked diced peppers, etc)
Add other (I've had them with a little shredded cheese, bacon bit sized pcs of [ham/chicken/pork]
some people add a bit of milk if the spuds are dryish.

About 1/2 cup per cake & cook like pancakes over medium-low heat on an oiled pan. Resist the temptation to flip to soon, they need to heat clear thru and brown on the outside. If you add anything with water in it (veggies) make sure you Don't make the "batter” watery with it. Much longer and more difficult process... Also not very cosmetically pleasing, even tho the taste is the same.

Last time I had them, I went all southern on them. Bunch of seasonings, Green Chillies and all that. Then I did a sunny side up and flopped it on top. I was a walking certs proving ground, but I was full and happy :D

Kartoffelpuffer mit Spinat. "Potato pancakes, with spinach"

An old family tradition. We all go running, when Mom says she's making it for
supper.

If she's willing to let her secret recipe out, I'll post it.

It's one of the only meals, that I can think of, that doesn't have meat, and
I'm thrilled to have it for supper.

I really like potato pancakes.  * note, PANCAKES ....  NOT made with left over mashed potatoes, but with raw, grated potatoes. They're similar to the frozen hash browns that you buy in the freezer section.  My father was Polish, and we called them Platski.   I also think they are called Blinis.
