Cheesy Potato Pancakes- With Leftovers!

Hey there!

I sure am sleepy today. After a long weekend and a lovely Thanksgiving, getting back to work this morning wasn’t easy. My alarm went off and I thought I was still dreaming! 😉 I do hope you all had a warm and laughter-filled holiday and are now getting prepared for all the festivities before Christmas!

If one thing is for sure, this is not the time for diets, so we might as well keep eating right? There still happened to be a few leftovers in the fridge when I got home today so we decided to look for something we could make with what we had. And boy did we find that solution!

Cheesy Potato Pancakes!

Using none other than your leftover mashed potatoes. This recipe is SO easy and seriously couldn’t be more delish. (We even doubled the recipe)

Mix up your chilled mashed potatoes, scallions (we used sautéed onions instead), cheese, egg, flour, and salt and pepper to taste.

Roll the mix into small balls with your hands and press flat, then dipping the cakes into flour on both sides.

Heat vegetable oil in a skillet so the bottom is covered over medium heat. Once it is hot enough, cook the pancakes until golden brown on both sides, 3-4 minutes. Lay the cakes on a paper-towel plate and salt immediately. We kept ours warmed in the oven until ready to serve.
