If you are not sure what to do with left over mashed potatoes I have just the recipe for you….Potato pancakes. I stumbled across this idea on food.com and now I actually cook extra mashed potatoes just to make this recipe.It’s very simple and great for breakfast the next morning.
2 cups leftover mashed potatoes1/4 cup whole wheat flour2 scallions thinly sliced2 eggs beaten1/2 tsp garlic powderSalt and pepperOlive oil or organic non stick cooking spray
– preheat pan to medium heat and add olive oil.
– Mix all ingredients except oil in a bowl and pour about a 1/4 cup for each cake in the hot pan.
– cook for about 3 minutes each side till cakes are golden brown and crispy.
