Mashed Potato Latkes – Thanksgiving Leftovers #2


What to do with leftover mashed potatoes?  Well that is a no-brainer…potato pancakes/latkes!  Making the mashed potato latkes gave me the chance to decide whether I want to do those, or grated potato latkes for our Hanukah party. I like both, so I am still not sure which I will do. We are having an early party (next weekend), so I need to decide soon.

 

We ate these with cranberry sauce rather than applesauce or sour cream; I have to say, I loved the two together!

Mashed Potato Latkes

3 to 4 cups leftover mashed potatoes

1 – 2 eggs (from Farmer Kim)

1/3 cup flour

1 Tbsp chives, chopped

Kosher salt and pepper

safflower oil (or canola oil)

Directions

In a bowl, mix together all ingredients except the oil.

Heat a skillet or walled griddle over medium-high heat.  Pour in enough oil to be 1/4″ deep.

Form the mashed potato mixture into small patties, place in the hot oil.  Do this in batches, it will take several to get through the entire mixture.

 

Heat until browned on the bottom. Flip and cook until browned on the other side.

Drain on paper towels.

 

Serve with applesauce, sour cream or… cranberry sauce.  Enjoy!

 

Makes about 20, depending on size and amount of potatoes.
