Mashed Potato Patties


I think I’ve never thought so much about food until I had a child. He’s 16 months old and the biggest question is ‘what to make for lunch / dinner?’ And he is a picky eater (I shouldn’t be complaining). He likes what he likes. What he likes today is not going to be the same the next day. I have to make new varieties for him and thats when I came across this. I had never tried it before and wanted to see if B likes it. I did get a positive response and hopefully I will make it again.
