    Thomas Danler's Note:

    This recipe was recently submitted to a news group to which I belong. I think it is very good and hope you like it, too. Preparation time in the kitchen is just a few minutes. When the big meal is through, this is a tasty way to use up the leftover mashed potatoes.

      My mother used to make these, and this recipe is very like hers (she never added cheese, though--don't know why, because adding cheese sounds yummy). These are great slathered with butter. Thanks for submitting it.

      I was disappointed with the results, unfortunately. Although the taste was good (how could it be not with our own recipe of mashed potatoes) the consistency was off. In the first batch fried, the outside skin was crisp but there wasn't enough structure to hold them together so they fell apart with the inside just uh.. mashed potatoes w/onion. The next batch, I incorporated more flour and a bit of baking powder and they turned out much better. The smaller they are made, the better! Use a tablespoon to plop the batter into the pan and you'll be much better off!

      BUT... what a great way to use leftover mashed potatoes!

      Awesome and easy. I used left over garlic mashed potatoes, sea salt, fresh ground pepper, approx 1 tbsp grated romano cheese and about a tsp of fresh chopped tarragon. Cooked in skillet with olive oil. Serving with italian sausage cooked in same skillet (after finishing cooking potato pancakes). Yum!
