Crunchy shell, smooth filling and a lovely bite.
You know at Costco all the sampling stations that offer different foods to try? If I could set up a sampling station for these potato pancakes, they would sell out, instantly.
These are a must make, or fry, to be more precise.
If you made this crock pot mashed potato recipe you might have leftovers. It makes a big portion, but having this recipe to use after makes it all worthwhile.
This is seriously the last potato pancake recipe you’ll ever need. It will make you want mashed potatoes, just to have leftovers to make this.
If you have about two cups of mashed potatoes, you can make this.
Divide the mashed potatoes into eight portions. Gently flatten into a patty. They will get much flatter during frying.
Dredge in flour mix. Brown the butter. Mine got a little too brown, you really want it more golden. Gently place the pancake in the pan. This is where patience comes in. Reduce the heat to medium-low and wait..and wait. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes. I left mine closer to 20, before turning and fry for another 15-20 minutes. Do NOT peek! They are forming a beautiful, golden crust, let them cook!
Serve with sour cream and extra green onion or chives. Fork optional.
