Often, after the decadence of the holidays, I just want something simple. And sometimes the most simple things are the best. This is one of those simple things that is a GREAT way to use up leftover mashed potatoes. In fact, sometimes, we make extra mashed potatoes just so we can make Potato Pancakes a few days later. These are great a variety of ways, especially with a little sour cream or with some of my Comeback Sauce. YUM! Y’all enjoy!
- 2 cups leftover real mashed potatoes
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 tablespoon milk
- In large bowl, combine ingredients well. The batter will be thick.
- Cook by dropping about 3 tablespoons of batter onto a greased hot skillet or non-stick pan. Cook about 6 minutes, then flip and press flat. Cook another 6 minutes.
