Potato Cakes from leftover Brændende kærlighed.

I meant to post this in a more timely fashion, but life got in my way.

However, I'm sure if you tried my Brændende kærlighed, you loved it.  But you may have had some leftover.

No shame in that.    I had some leftover, and put it into the fridge cause I didn't want to throw it away.

Who wastes Bacon and Mashed Potatoes anyway?

Not me.

So I decided to play with the leftovers.

It's my food and I can play if I want to, so there.

What I came up with was something that, ummm, made me wish I had more leftovers to play with cause it was downright delicious and yummy and I'm getting hungry just thinking about it again.

I put the leftovers in a bowl, added a scant half cup of flour and and an egg.   Mixed it all together and then proceeded to form cakes out of them and fried them in a little butter.

They were fantastic with a little dab of Creme Fraiche on top.   I'm tempted to make Brændende kærlighed or Burning Love again, just so I can have the leftovers.

Recipe:  Burning Love Potato Cakes              Yield about 4 good sized Potato Cakes

1-2 cups leftover Brændende kærlighed or Burning Love
1 egg
1/2 cup flour

1 Tbsp. Butter
1 Tbsp. EVOO

Mix the first three ingredients together and then dollop 1/4-1/2 cup portions onto a preheated pan with the butter and EVOO melted together over medium high heat.  Fry on one side until a lovely dark brown, and then flip over.  Continue to cook on the other side until it also gets a brown crust.   Serve with some Creme Fraiche.

All I know is that these made a brilliant breakfast.  And pretty well balanced as well.  
I had my egg, potatoes, bacon and a touch of caramelized onion alongside the dairy in the Creme Fraiche.

And did you notice I managed to time this post so that you have time to make some Brændende kærlighed or Burning Love for dinner this weekend so you can use the leftovers for breakfast on Sunday?
Just sayin...
