Leftover Mashed Potato PancakesPosted: May 1, 2008
I was super bored with the side dishes I was making H, so I decided to find something new. We had some leftover loaded mashed potatoes, and after several suggestions on WC, I decided to try potato pancakes. A while back while visiting the Dockery family, Heather made some potato pancakes from their leftover mashed potatoes. Remembering what she did, I decided to try it since H loved what she whipped up!
2 cups leftover mashed potatoes-I used our loaded mashed which required no other seasonings or add ins
Any add ins as necessary to “dress up” your potatoes
1 cup flour
EVOO for pan to fry pancakes
Mix potatoes, flour, and egg. Add more flour if necessary to make a sticky pancake. Be careful not to add too much.
Heat oil in pan. Once heated drop potato mixture in a sticky pancake form into pan. Fry until golden brown on one side. Flip and finish cooking other side.
When pancake is done, set on a plate of paper towels to soak up any extra oil. Keep warm until all pancakes are finished.
Serve with butter or sour cream to top!
