I like these potato pancakes better than any other fried potato for breakfast. They are a great substitute for when it's too cold/windy to grill sliced potatoes outside.
Mashed Potato Pancakes
- 2 cups mashed potatoes
- 1 large egg - lightly beaten
- 6 Tablespoons -3/4c flour depending on firmness of mashed potatoes
- 1 small onion, grated (chopped green onions could be substituted)
- salt and pepper - to taste
- vegetable oil for frying
In a large skillet or on a griddle, heat vegetable oil (about 3 Tablespoons) over medium-high heat. Dollop batter onto the heated surface in heaping tablespoons. Flatten each dollop slightly with a fork. Fry on each side for 1-2 minutes until golden brown. Leftovers can be reheated for a few minutes on each side. This will make them very dark brown. If that isn't your thing, reheat in the microwave for about 20 sec or until heated to your liking.
