“Excellent side dish for a meat loaf or other dish that needs a little accent. As for myself, a brunch side for scrambled eggs.”


  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup shredded Tex-Mex cheese blend
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green onions (white portion only)
  • 1/2 (8 ounce) jar pickled jalapenos, drained and chopped, or to taste
  • 1 (4 ounce) can canned diced green chiles, drained
  • 4 cups prepared mashed potatoes
  • 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3/4 cup prepared salsa


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Stir egg, Tex-Mex cheese, green onions, jalapenos, and green chiles together in a bowl; stir in mashed potatoes. Form potato mixture into 8 patties; place on prepared baking sheet.
  3. Stir bread crumbs, cumin, and chili powder together in a small bowl. Dot each patty with 1 1/2 tablespoons salsa; sprinkle with 1 1/2 tablespoons bread crumb mixture.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and topping is lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
