The Left Over Bowl Of Mashed Potatoes

THE LEFT OVER BOWL OF MASHED POTATOES


Good And Hot Mashed Potatoes With Gravy Sound Good Last Night Meal..But Leftover Hum!???


What to do with them? I have some plans for those last night side of Potatoes. Everyone love mashed Potatoes and Gravy. Sooooo sometime you cook way too many. Don't push them to the side and forget about them because they are leftovers. I got recipes on the way.


 NUMBER 1 

CHEESY LEFTOVER MASHED POTATO PANCAKES



3 cups chilled leftover mashed potatoes

1/2 cup Sharp shredded cheddar cheese

2 Tablespoons chopped scallions

1 egg beaten

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

3 tablespoon self-raising flour

Canola oil for pan-frying


DIRECTIONS:

In a large bowl, stir together the mashed potatoes, cheese, scallions, egg and 3 tablespoons self-raising flour until combined.

Using your hands, divide the mixture into 12 portions. Roll each portion into a compact ball then flatten it into a pancake about a 1/2-inch-thick.

Place the remaining 1/2 cup of flour in a shallow dish and carefully dredge each pancake in the flour.

Heat 3 to 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. (Add enough oil to thoroughly coat the bottom of the pan.)

Fry the pancakes, in batches, until they're golden brown and crispy on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes. Add more oil to the pan as needed between batches. (Do not overcrowd the pan).


Now you can add the left over gravy over them and make another great side.
