A great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes. Sometimes, it helps to make extra! Great for breakfast, or as a dinner side.
2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
1/4 cup flour
1 green onion, sliced
1/3 to 1/2 cup shredded parmesan or romano cheese
salt and pepper to taste
a few tablespoons milk, if needed
oil and/or butter, for frying
Combine all ingredients. My leftover mashed potatoes were on the dry side, so I had to add a few tablespoons of milk to thin out the batter.
I added a little pepper, but no salt since the potatoes were already seasoned. Plus the cheese adds some saltiness.
There are a variety of ways to use up these pancakes. Smoked salmon and sour cream sounds pretty good, too.
Also, great for a special breakfast!
