Mashed Potato Cakes |
Recipe Submitted By Sandy Moyer
1 cup left-over mashed potatoes
1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 to 2 tablespoons milk
2 to 3 tablespoons shortening
Beat egg. Mix with mashed potatoes. Add dry ingredients. Add milk and mix well. Batter should be very thick. Melt shortening in frying pan, on medium high heat. Spoon batter into pan by heaping tablespoons to form 3 to 3 1/2 inch wide potato pancakes, about 1/2 inch thick. When well set and brown around edges, turn to brown on the other side. We serve these as a side dish. It's a good way to use left-over mashed potatoes. Most people use ketchup on top.
