"My mother often made this recipe and probably grew up with it in the Appalachian area of Tennessee. She usually served it on Monday, making use of leftover mashed potatoes from Sunday dinner. We used to eat this topped with brown gravy."

Very good basic recipe. Cooking in the oven was key. I used non stick spray on the cookie sheet. They held their shape and didn't stick to the pan. Let the pancakes cool a few minutes before re...

This is a GREAT way to use up dinner leftover mashed potatoes for a Saturday hot family breakfast together. What I love about this is I've tried to achieve this potato pancake to no avail in th...
