COOK TIME

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 1/4 cups 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.

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

POTATO CAKES Leftover mashed potatoes never go to waste. In fact, some family members wish there were more of them more often so that potato cakes were prepared more frequently. Potato cakes are at their best if they are eaten immediately after leaving the frying pan. 2 cups leftover mashed potatoes 1 egg, beaten 1 Tbsp. Flour, or more if the potatoes are thin 2 Tbsp. Cream, or less if the potatoes are thin 1 Tbsp. Onion, chopped fine 2 3 Tbsp. Shortening, for frying Mix together all ingredients except shortening. Heat shortening. Drop potatoes by tablespoons into shortening and brown on both sides. Makes 4 6 servings Note: This recipe is from The Best of Amish Cooking by Phyllis Pellman Good I always make extra mashed potatoes so we can enjoy potato pancakes.
