I was a bit doubtful but was delightfully surprised. I added a few more massed potatoes and left out the spring onion (didn't have any), but used onion salt instead. They were tasty. I wish I had used a bit more salt than I did. One other variation - since I had cooked bacon for another part of dinner, I cooked the cabbage in the bacon fat and then the pancakes in the same pan.

This totally didn't work for me. I followed the recipe exactly and all was well until I added the eggs to the cabbage/potato mixture. Then it just turned into a sloppy mess. It was completely mushy even when cooked and both looked and tasted unappealing. Unfortunately, we had to throw it out.

What a wonderfully different way to enjoy leftover mashed potatoes!!! I doubled this recipe (thank goodness)!! The only thing I added was a little bit of garlic powder. I loved these with ketchup, but I'm a little weird I guess, because everyone else chose applesauce or sour cream. Either which way, they are delicious! Thank you, Evie*!! ~Manda
