I had leftover garlic mashed, so I used those, and left out the corn syrup. These were EXCELLENT with a little ketchup. My three year old ate 3 by himself! (can't beat fried mashed potatoes!)

We used left-over mashed potatoes from Christmas dinner for this recipe. They had a very pasty consistency and a sweet taste that didn't seem right, so next time, we will omit the flour, 1 egg, and the corn syrup.

I made these for my family last night and was delighted with the results -- within seconds they were completely gone! I have yet to find a snack which required such little prep time, and which yielded such amazing responses from my family! Thank you Ellen for making dinner fun again!
