I had made a HUGE batch of mashed taters last night so this morning I transformed them into these delicious, light crispy pancakes which went great with regular breakfast fare, but somehow elevated the ingredients.
I took about 2-3 cups of stiff mashed potatoes along with 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese (grated) and one egg, beaten. I mixed this into a stiff (but slightly wet) batter. On a dinner plate I put about 2 cup of panko bread crumbs (could also use regular dry breadcrumbs). With wet hands, I made balls of dough about the size of a small plum. I rolled them in to a ball and placed them on the crumbs and pressed down lightly to flatten. I flipped them over in the crumbs gently and pressed again very lightly. Into a hot 10 inch saute pan with about 2 Tablespoon of veggie oil, I placed the patties. I cooked them for about 4 minutes on each side till medium brown.
YUMMY! Happy Eating!
