Mashed Potato Pancakes

Here is another delicious recipe that uses one of my favorite vegetables – Potato. Was looking for a good recipe for mashed potato pancakes and ran over this recipe which I favored so I gave it a try. I used about 3 small potatoes and boiled them with their skin on, let them cool a little and then mashed them to get my good cup of mashed potatoes.

It is a perfect side dish that can save you in the days when you are in a rush. You can boil your potatoes with a day before, refrigerate them and make the pancakes only before serving. It takes few minutes and you got some delicious, crispy potato pancakes, and healthy too. You definitely must give these mashed potato pancakes a try.
