Mashed Potato Pancakes

Mashed Potato Pancakes

 

My grandmother would always make mashed potato pancakes with our left over mashed potatoes, when I was young. This versatile recipe can be prepared for breakfast the next morning (as a replacement for hash browns), as an appetizer, side dish or a snack. Around grandma’s house they were usually made for an after dinner snack and didn’t last very long that evening.

Recipe type: Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4

Ingredients
  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup flour
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions
  1. Heat about ¼ inch olive oil in a frying pan to medium heat.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. This will be the consistency of thick pancake batter.
  3. Drop batter into hot oil and fry until golden brown. I prefer smaller pancakes and use about ¼ cup batter per pancake.
  4. Remove from oil and place on paper towels to remove excess oil.
  5. Serve warm with sour cream and/or apple sauce.
