Mashed Potato Pancakes

I think everyone knows how to make mashed potato pancakes but we just ate them last evening and they were so good I thought I'd put the recipe here even just as a reminder of another way to fix potatoes.

Left over mashed potatoes or fix some from instant mashed potatoes.
Stir in an egg.
Season with salt & pepper

Pour a small amount of olive oil in the bottom of a frying pan, just to cover the bottom.
Drop scoops of mashed potatoes on the hot olive oil.
Brown on both sides.
Flip over like a pancake.

Thanks for dropping by and checking on me while I've been sick. I love your recipe. We had this when I was a little girl in Indiana. We ate them with mayo on the side. I loved it. I hadn't thought about them in years. Thank you for bringing that back to my mind. I hope you are doing well this Sunday. I will rest some more today and go into work to pick up some things I need to do and bring them back here to the apt. to work on. I hope you have a great day of rest!!

I hope you are keeping warm way up north. It is super windy and getting chilly down here in Georgia. I love your new picture on your blog. Someday I may find a picture that I will put on mine. For now my little red haired girl is representing me. I hope you are doing great! Hugs, Trish
