I have a ton of mashed potatoes leftover from last night’s Christmas supper. My kids love potato pancakes, so Crystal Wheeler, who produced and screened calls today for the Clark Howard Show, called her mom for her recipe.

Crystal’s Mom’s Mashed Potato Pancake Recipe:

beat an egg and add that to the leftover mashed potatoes. Add a little bit of flour and salt and pepper to taste. Make the potato pancake patties and then coat the pancake in a little more flour on each side before frying them up in a little bit of oil. (I’m going to use olive oil.)

Crystal swears by them.
