Take leftover mashed potatoes add a raw egg and form into patties; then saute 'til browned.  I often leave out the egg, which is just to make the patty more stable.

I would add a beaten egg to the potatoes and some finely minced onion.  Fry it up, salt and pepper, yum!

You bring back fond memories for me @kitty4me!  When I was a kid I liked the leftover mashed potato pancakes better than the fresh mashed potatoes!

I use left over mashed potatoes, a little minced onion and egg. Coat with cracker meal.

Saute in pan with a little shortening until brown.

Cracker meal- not bread crumbs. Salt and pepper too.

About 3 medium mashed potatoes

1 beaten egg

1 Tab flour

1/8 tea baking powder

1/4 tea salt

1/8 tea pepper

1/4 cup finely shredded onion

 

Squish it all together and fry.  Top with cheese and melt if desired.

My mom used to make them using left over cold mashed potatoes.   She would form them into a patty (the size of a hamburger) and fry them in butter until lightly browned and crispy on both sides. Really good!

I've never had potato pancakes this way. 

I use raw potatoes. I don't measure anything any more. It's all by "taste"  My Mom taught me the way her Polish Mom made them.

I too have great memories of these. i so loved them as you probably more than my Mother's mashed potatoes since she never got all the lumps out which I make sure to do today. So these pancakes along with her pickled cucumbers and onions were two of my favorites and regular side dishes.

Do you mean bread and butter pickles?  Used to love to make bread and butter pickle sandwiches!  Do you have a recipe for these pickles?
