Mashed Potato Pancakes

whenever i have leftover mashed potatoes, i start drooling when i think about making potato pancakes. they're so simple & good.
and i pretend they're good for me. because potato is a vegetable. right?

Mashed Potato Pancakes
You Need:
2 cups mashed potatoes
1 large egg (lightly beaten)
6-8 tblsp flour
1-2 tsp onion powder
salt & pepper (to taste)
oil/butter for frying

In a medium bowl, whisk together the mashed potatoes and egg. Add the flour and onion powder and mix all together well. Add salt and pepper to batter if desired.

In a large skillet or on a griddle, heat vegetable oil/butter (i use both- about 3 tblsp or so) over medium-high heat. Dollop batter onto the heated surface in heaping tablespoons like pancakes). Flatten each dollop slightly with the spoon to create the cakes.

Cooking time = golden brown on each side. So eyeball it- anywhere from 2-4 minutes or so.

i like to eat them straight up- or with eggs over easy & cheese. or anything for that matter- they're awesome.

Pin It!
