Crispy Potato Patties

2 cups mashed potatoes
1 egg, beaten
1 minced onion
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

Mix together mashed potatoes, beaten egg and onion in a medium bowl. Add salt and pepper and stir.

Over medium heat, heat olive oil in a medium size nonstick frying pan. Drop about 1/4 cup of the potato mixture into the frying pan, patting it into 4 inch circles that are 1/2" thick. Cook until bottom is browned and crisp. Carefully turn the patty over and cook the second side until brown and crisp. Serve with ketchup or salsa.
