Yummy way to use up leftover mashed potatoes!! I decided to make mine for breakfast and scaled it back to 1/4 of the recipe, which did give us 2 good sized pancakes. I didn't need the whole egg, so combined the rest of it with another egg to make scrambled eggs and then served the eggs and pancake with a fresh fruit salad. I could see adding different veggies and even some ham, bacon or sausage to the cakes, yum!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag Game.
