Crispy Omelet Potato Puff Breakfast Bars

To me there is just something honest about mashed potatoes.  They are a simple man food.  They fill your tummy up and comfort you through out the day. They are inexpensive and have often fed my family growing up when other foods were hard to come by.  Mom could make wonders out of them.  And what was awesome is that it never was just plain mashed potatoes every night (even though hers were seriously the best!). Sunday she’d always make at least 10lbs of them to go with our pot roast.  Monday she’d turn them into croquettes.  Tuesday were potato stacks and so forth through out the week. By Saturday there wasn’t much left so she’d make them into some type of breakfast treat.

The thing is, she never made them the same way each and every time. Why?  We didn’t always have the same ingredients on hand so she went with what she had however the basics were pretty much the same – eggs, mashed potatoes, corn flakes and bread crumbs.  After that the mix-ins were endless.

This is one of my favorite ways to use leftover mashed potatoes

Crispy Baked Chicken Croquettes

I tend to make a whole roasted chicken about once a week either to eat as the actual meal or just to use the meat in another dish.   I had made my Ultimate Proposal Roasted Chicken for us however we didn’t finish it all. There wasn’t quite enough left for a meal for him (let alone a snack) and I wasn’t in the mood for just pieces of chicken.  At the same time I had some a few potatoes I had to use up as they were just on the verge of being too soft and you know me, I hate wasting food. As I was looking through my recipe I came across my recipe for my potato croquettes and thought I’d revamp them and turn them into a new recipe, Crispy Baked Chicken Croquettes.

Croquettes are something my Dad always made using leftovers when we were growing up.
