Potato Pancakes

I always have left over mashed potatoes, so this is the recipe I typically repurpose them with.  My kids can eat them all themselves.



3 C Mashed Potatoes (roughly)

1/2 C Cheese, shredded (I typically use cheddar, but just about any will be fine in this recipe)

2 Eggs, beaten

1/2 C Flour

Oil for frying


-Mix all ingredients together in bowl.

-Heat oil in pan, you want about 2 inches to cover top and bottom of cake.

-Using about 1/8 C of mixture, add to hot oil.  Fry 3-5 minutes or until both sides are golden brown.  Remove from oil, place on paper towel lined plate to drain excess grease.  Serve warm.

-These are great with cheese, chives, bacon crumbles, or sour cream as topping. Enjoy!
