(originally made 11/2012)
Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend. Jake's back to
school today and Tim's off helping a friend and I decided that I was
going to treat myself to brunch and also clear out the last of the
leftovers by making some potato pancakes.
My potatoes are mashed with butter, sour cream and a splash of heavy
cream. Little bit of salt, fresh cracked black pepper and about a 1/2c
of shredded cheddar cheese. Sometimes bacon, but not this year.
the pancakes, I took about 2c of leftover mash, added 2 eggs, a little
more pepper and 2 tablespoons of flour. Stirred together and then
heated some olive oil in the skillet. I used a cookie scoop to get
similar size cakes and flattened them with the back of a sprayed
spatula. About 3 to 5 mins per side, they are VERY delicate so you
want to make sure they've got a good crust and you flip them
gently. Topped with a little more salt and some dried chives.
YUM! :) I'd say I got about 12-14 patties, will freeze the
remainder on a cookie sheet and then pop them into a bag for quick
reheating at a later time.
