Ever wonder what to do with piles of mashed potatoes left over after a big meal? This makes a great snack or lunch!
Mashed Potato Pancakes
2 cups mashed potatoes
1/2 cup milk
2 Tbsp water
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup grated cheese (optional)
1 Tbsp chopped chives or parsley (optional)
Whisk the first four ingredients together until combined. Add in flour and baking powder and mix well. Stir in cheese and herbs.
Heat a griddle or pan to medium-hot and brush with butter. Pour 4" circles of batter onto the pan and cook until the edges begin to dry (the middle won't bubble and dry the way crepes or pancakes do). Flip and cook until the cake puffs, check for golden brown goodness on each side and they're done!
Serve with sour cream (or ketchup, if your toddler insists)! Makes about 20 pancakes.
