    Tocchetti ("cubed potatoes" in Italian)?

    Re: What are they called?

    I found the photo in google/images, and I didn't see a recipe with it - do those look like yours?  I googled "tocchetti," but it seems to be something that doesn't have a universal recipe.

    I thought of croquettes at first, but those are all made with whipped potato to my knowledge.  I don't think there's any such thing as a chunky croquette.

    I think it's a variation of Tocchetti because it translates to "cubed potatoes," a  hallmark of your family's tradtional recipe.

    Re: What are they called?

    Sounds a bit like a hash-brown, or potatoe fritter.
    However, at the Italian festival of Saint-whoever in Little Italy in Boston North End there were loads of street stalls selling something like what you describe except the ball was not flattened, but remained spherical. There were even a choice of fillings. but those ones were fried. Tasted absolutely gross, mind you and cost like $5 each (rip-off to be expected in tourist areas, I know).
    Maybe someone from the North-End will know the name?

    Re: What are they called?

    RT--I asked a friend of mine who was raised in Sardinia, and teaches Italian.
    This was the response I got:
    Il nome della ricetta e`" Braciole di Patate" ed e` una specialita` della Calabria. Generalmente pero` hanno la forma di una polpetta.

    So, "Braciole di Patate", although they are generally shaped like meatballs.
    Hope that helps!

    You usually toss leftover mashed potatoes?  You know you can just reheat them, right?  Leftover mashed potatoes are better than the day you make them...imo.
