Leftover Mashed Potatoes, Anyone?

Hi, guys!  Just a short post that I thought you might enjoy.  Today I made mashed potato pancakes from leftover mashed potatoes.  I will let you in on a secret, I make a ton of extra potatoes so I will have leftovers just for this purpose!


I make large fat pancakes out of the mashed potatoes.  I then dust them lightly on both sides with flour. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and smoked paprika (if you can get Penzey's brand spices, I would highly recommend them as they are my favorite. I am NOT paid by them to say that, just want to recommend them to you).   I fry them up in a combo of olive oil and butter.  Let me tell you, they are delicious and my husband requests them as soon as he learns I have mashed potatoes on the menu the night before. My sisters and I all remember these from my mother's kitchen and us Poley gals never met a potato we didn't like.

Hope you have a great day!  I will be back soon with some inky creations!

What a great idea! Whenever my husband makes mashed potatoes there's almost always some left over.

Oh you are sooooo bad. I've been on a low carb diet, but seeing these patties are like a slice of heaven. I can almost smell them from here.

Seeing these brings back some wonderful memories of my dad who loved these and first introduced me to their deliciousness as a young girl.

Thanks for giving me have a major craving for potato pancakes! =)

Oh my goodness I haven't had these since high school. My boyfriends parents used to make them all the time for me because I loved them so much. I can't believe I've never tried to make them myself. I'll have to try it out :)
