Swedish Mashed Potato Pancakes
I knew a very good Swedish cook who always made these for her family. If they're good enough for her family, you betcha they're good enough for us!
What You'll Need:
2 cups water
4 tablespoons (¼ cup) butter
1 teaspoon salt
teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon onion powder
cups instant mashed potato flakes
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
What To Do:
- Preheat the oven to 400 degree F.
- In a large saucepan, combine the water, milk, butter, salt, cumin, and onion powder. As soon as mixture comes to a boil, remove the saucepan from the heat and add the potato flakes; mix until smooth.
- Add the parsley and egg and mix again until smooth.
- Form mixture into 8 equal-sized patties. Brush both sides with the oil and place on a large nonstick cookie sheet that has been coated with nonstick vegetable spray. Bake for 25 minutes, turning once halfway through the cooking.
Makes 8 pancakes.
Try making the patties half the size directed in the recipe and they'll be perfect for snacks or hors d'oeuvres.
