  • Ready In

  1. In a medium size mixing bowl combine mashed potatoes, egg, flour, salt (if needed) and garlic salt. Mix well.
  2. Melt butter in a large frying pan over a low heat. Drop pancake-size (4 inch circles) lumps of mashed potatoes into the frying pan. Pat to flatten to 1/2 to 1 inch thickness. Sprinkle some cheddar cheese onto the mashed potato cake. Spoon more potato mixture over the cheese. Flip the potato cake over when the bottom is browned (about 10 minutes). Brown the other side (about 10 minutes).

Footnotes

  • Editor's Note:
  • If your mashed potatoes are already well seasoned, use garlic powder or fresh garlic instead of garlic salt.

There's a lot I learned for this, but its a great recipe with some help! I used loaded instant potatos after reading other reviews. I started with the heat on 2, then got tired of waiting long...

These pancakes are light and fluffy. I followed the recipe exactly. The only thing to remember is to have your mashed potatoes at room temperature. They cook very quickly.

I loved this recipe to use up leftover mashed potatoes from Thanksgiving. I altered the recipe slightly by adding about 1 tsp cayenne pepper, 1/2 can of corn, 1/2 c chopped red bell pepper and ...

I added the cheese to the potato mixture and played around with the seasoning....one time with onion and another with bacon. I cooked each side for about 4 minutes on medium heat.
