A great recipe to help you use up the leftover mashed potatoes. Adding some scallions, salt and black pepper enhances the flavor, frying them in pan gives the nice texture, and serving with some sour cream, chili sauce or salsa, and sauerkraut makes another delicious yet cost-effective meal.

Made lots of mashed potatoes the other day. Wondering if I could make something else with the leftover mashed potatoes, these pancakes hit my attention and they actually came out delicious. Very easy to make, and we served the golden-brown pancakes with some yogurt, sauerkraut, and chili sauce, very tasty. A definite keeper recipe.
