Mashed Potato Pancakes

Apologies to whomever (or whereever) I first saw a recipe for mashed potato pancakes! The website is completely lost from my memory.

What a wonderful idea! And yes, they are as delicious as you would expect: pillowy pancakes made of mashed potato goodness. Wednesday is mashed potato night for us and leftovers are made on purpose to make these tasty morsels for weekend brunch.

While they are tasty on their own, we like to slather them with chipotle mayo or chevre or tomato jam or pesto. Kind of anything goes well with them, the sky's the limit!

Mashed Potato Pancakes
(serves 2-3)

1 cup cold prepared mashed potatoes
1 egg
1/2 cup flour
oil for frying

Mix in egg and flour and blend well until well mixed. The mixture should be pretty thick, not soupy. Heat a skillet over medium heat for a few minutes. Coat the bottom with oil and drop in about 1/3 cup of the mixture and fry until brown, flipping once. Serve immediately.
