In my family, we called these "Potato Cakes" while the mix grated raw potatoes/raw onions made "Potato Pancakes" (like latkes).

Is anyone else sick of that Bounty commercial with the spilled chicken soup?

This sounds like a great idea for camping! The thought of using "instant" anything kinda weirds me out. But when your away from the kitchen...yup, that works. I just love this guys videos.

Wrong! On all counts, if I even had a box of instant mashed potatoes in my pantry in the trash it would go without question.

Oh my Gosh Tabea sounds so good. Never thought about dipping them in seasoned flour first. Anything fried in bacon grease comes out tasting good. now this is how they use to cook, mmm mmm mmm so so good. Thank you :)

@Jefrodesiak: Potato pancakes can go with various breakfast meats, and can be part of a full cooked breakfast in parts of Ireland. This recipe gives the recipe for a regional Irish breakfast, and you can substitute these potato pancakes for the potato farls mentioned in the recipe. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/fergs-ulster-fry-up/detail.aspx Personally, I love to make potato pancakes, and have them with black pudding and mushy peas, but you can have them with any recipe where potatoes could be served as a side dish.

I agree with Tabea. I was raised in a Missouri mostly german community and that is how my mom cooked these wonderful potato cakes! As for using instant mashed potatoes, I use Ore-Ida Original. Not an ad, just saying these potatoes are great! As for what to serve these with? Wonderful with pork chops, eggs and bacon, bacon and gravy, just about anything you can think of.

@plamuk aka travellingchef... please don't bother use with you useless criticisms... you are clearly a master chef - - hence: "My cooking triumphs Too many to mention but several banquets for over 500 at a time in different parts of the world would be included. Thanx all. 'nuf sed." (from your profile.) We all understand that you are a master and should be spending your time in the classroom, teaching the inspired to cook Thailand's greatest hits... but please make sure that you are NOT teaching them to be as critical of those without your talents as you are. (In addition, remember that this is NOT a site for the likes of you... who are clearly in the Michelin Star quality cooks - - at least according to you. This is a site who think that Michelin still refers to tires,((I apologize to those of of you who don't)) instead of those who think of your fine- french/thai/whatever cuisine.) This is a recipe for easy potato pancakes, and I cannot stand the fact that your review was so snide.

These look good but the presenter should not claim that nobody can tell they are instant mashed potatoes. Also, if he is a chef he would not use a non-stick frying pan over high heat as they tend to burn. Use over medium heat maximum. Finally, these are not truly pancakes but potato cakes. Thanx all.

My German Mother makes these from left over mashed potatoes. The only difference is that she dips the cakes in seasoned flour before frying. And then fries them in bacon grease. :)
