Recipe | "Next Day Potato Pancakes"

I had a wonderful holiday with friends...with tons of amazing food! I was asked to bring the mashed potatoes for 10 people, which I did, but I went a little overboard and ended up taking a great deal back home...needless to say we'll be eating mashed potato dishes for the next week...maybe 2!

These are day 1: super simple..."Next Day Potato Panackes." This recipe makes about 4 large cakes. ~ Alicia

Combine the following in a large mixing bowl: 2 Eggs, 1/4 tsp. Kosher Salt & Black Pepper (less if the mashed potatoes you are starting with are heavily seasoned, 1/8 tsp. Baking Powder, 1/4 Cup Sour Cream, Dash of Smoked Paprika, Dash of Onion Powder, 2 Scallions chopped (leave some aside for a garnish), 1 tsp. Fresh Dill, (Optional, 1 tsp. jalapeño finely minced). Mix well. Then start adding in your mashed potatoes until the consistency is slightly thicker than wallpaper paste. Takes Approx 1 C. mashed potatoes.

To Fry: Use a large non-stick frying pan on medium-high heat with 1 Tbsp. butter or baking spray. Spoon the mixture into pan as you would a normal pancake, approx 3-4 inches in diameter. Do not touch, or poke at the cakes while cooking. Leave them to fry for a good 5 minutes, until the sides begin to appear golden brown. Flip with plastic spatula in one motion, and cook the other side for another 5 minutes. If your butter has been absorbed by the cakes, you may want to add another Tbsp. at this point.

Garnish with scallions and/or paprika. Serve with egg cooked over easy on top. Bacon or ham on the side is a nice salty addition...or perhaps some smoked salmon. Yum!
