This is a recipe for potato pancakes, made specifically from Idado Spuds instant mashed potatoes, which are low in "big four" numbers (protein, sodium, potassium, and phosphorus) I was able to form 4 good-sized pancakes from two servings of instant mashed potatoes, and they actually taste good! When fried, the cheese creates a golden, crispy crust on the outside. Cooking time will vary according to person preference of crispness desired. While this recipe does contain cheese, it does not contain milk, flour, or eggs, (and are also gluten-free!) which is the reason why this recipe is low in the "big four." Idaho Spuds contain 4% potassium per 1/3 C serving. Sargento Ulra-Thin Swiss cheese contains 3G of protein per slice, 2g in the potatoes, in 1.5g in the Parmesan cheese (about 4g per serving) The 1/4 cup of onion and garlic contain 129 mg of potassium (about 65 mg per serving) and 28 mg of phosphorus (about 14 mg per serving). Food.com estimates about 4% sodium per serving.
