Mashed Potato Pancakes

In my family, we love Thanksgiving leftovers. We make lots of extra everything so that we can eat Thanksgiving a few times over. Cool lives, I know. Leftover mashed potatoes lend themselves to a really delicious snack (or in this case, what I just ate for breakfast): Mashed Potato pancakes. These take about 30 seconds to put together and just a few minutes to cook. They’re crispy and delicious!

P.S. Speaking of potato pancakes, does anyone have a fantastic latke recipe? I loove them and have never made them myself. Thanks in advance!

Mashed Potato Pancakes

Leftover mashed potatoes
olive oil
salt and pepper
sour cream (optional)
chives (0ptional)

Heat a pan over medium-high heat and brush with olive oil. Take your leftover mashed potatoes out of the fridge and form them into patties – you can make them whatever size you want, from minis to big guys. When pan is hot, place patties in pan and cook for about 5 minutes. Brush olive oil on the top side and salt and pepper to taste. Flip and cook another 5 minutes, or until desired crispness is reach (be careful when flipping – they’re slightly delicate). Garnish with chives and serve with sour cream.

  1. Took a break from protein shakes and egg whites and made these. Actually I only made one huge cake and I added garlic and some cheddar cheese, but same idea. I never have mine with sour cream, but at your suggestion I slapped a spoonful of fat-free on there… and it was pretty tasty!
