I love mashed potatoes – they are one of my favourite food so I was in potato heaven when I was about 13 and my dad served us mashed potato pancakes on a Saturday morning with Nana’s leftovers. So good. Simply perfection. I made them for the first time a few years ago for Bryce and he loved them, too. So, here I am sharing my easy and simple recipe with you. Let’s get cooking.

Ingredients

  • leftover mashed potatoes – about 3 cups
  • 1 cup of shredded old cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1/4 cup of sliced green onions

First, you’ll need to start out with cold leftover mashed potatoes. Then, shredded the cheese and slice the green onions.

Mix the cheese and the potatoes together then work them into little cakes. Use the palm of your hand and your thumb to shape them.

In a large pan melt the butter. Then, drop in the potato pancakes.

Cook about 3-4 minutes per side. Be sure you don’t over cook them – you don’t want them to totally melt, but rather get a crispy edge and be warm in the middle.
