Have tons on leftover mashed potatoes from Thanksgiving do ya? I did so for breakfast this morning I made potato pancakes.
2 cups of mashed potatoes (warm them so it's easier to whisk)
1/4 cup of flour
1/4 cup of milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
Salt and pepper to taste
In mixing bowl, mix milk, egg, flour and salt and pepper. Whisk well. Add warm mashed potatoes and whisk for at least 3 minutes.
Heat 1 tbsp of salted butter over medium high heat until melted and evenly distributed in the pan. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, scoop out potato mixture on pan. Cook on each side about 3 minutes each. DO NOT over turn. They will break up. Another alternative is frying in bacon grease for you non healthy folks.
BAM! This recipe makes about 6-8 pancakes, so double if you dare!
