These Mashed Potato Pancakes eliminate the grated knuckles we get from grating raw potatoes traditional-style. These little bites are a nice change of pace and are downright delicious.

What You'll Need:
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 cups instant potato flakes
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • Vegetable oil for frying (1/2 inch deep in large skillet)
What To Do:
  1. In a large saucepan, combine water, butter, and salt; bring to a boil. Remove from heat, add potato flakes, and mix. Add milk, then mix again until smooth; let cool. Add onion, parsley, flour, and eggs; mix well.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil. Using about 1/4 cup of mixture per pancake, form pancakes and fry in skillet 2 minutes on each side, or until golden. Drain pancakes on paper towels. Serve immediately.

  • Serve with applesauce, sour cream, ketchup, or syrup -- whatever's your favorite.
