Smashed Tater Pancakes

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by VeggieCook98

This is the perfect way to use up leftover mashed potatoes! This recipe can be easily doubled, tripled, or even halved, depending on the amount of leftover mashed potatoes you have. You might have to add more oil as you go.

I cooked some spuds up especially ( well why not..they're worth it!).
We loved these...even the none potato loving 7 year old ate one without the usual amount of moaning and groaning!!
I'm going to make these with breakfast next time...reckon they'll be fab with a fried or poached egg sat on top!
Made for PRMR.
