The next time you make mashed potatoes make a 2 cups extra and put that 2 cups away before adding the milk and butter to the rest. You can even freeze the 2 cups that you saved. That way your all set to make this delicious side dish when ever you want to.

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.
