Q & A
"What do I do with leftover mashed potatoes?"
Grandma Pedie's Pan-Fried Potato Patties
About eight medium-sized potatoes to make about four cups of mashed potatoes.
The mashed potatoes for pancakes need to be cold from the refrigerator to be of the right consistency.
The mashed potatoes should be allowed to stay in the frige for two or three days.
Add two whole eggs, two cups of flour and one half a large onion, diced.
Add salt and pepper to taste and mix well with a spoon.
Mix this in the morning to fry for supper if you like a stronger flavor.
To fry, you'll need a heavy metal pan that is not non-stick.
Place the pan on medium heat on the stove.
We chose 5.
Add just enough oil to cover the bottom of your pan.
Peanut oil will make these taste really good!
Here's Grandma Pedie frying 'em up in a pan!
Flip them quickly - only 30 to 40 seconds per side!
Don't forget about dessert - this time it's brownies from a mix baked in Pam-sprayed muffin tins for 32 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Why buy a special pan for $20 when you can use what you've got already?!? A scoop of French vanilla ice cream will top these off nicely!
