I love potatoes. In fact if you don’t like potatoes I’m pretty sure we can’t be friends. I realize they’re probably not the best thing to eat if you’re trying to lose weight, but since the Super Bowl was this past weekend and I busted out some homemade potato skins, I had leftover potatoes.
One of my favorite things to do with leftover potatoes is make Latkes or potato pancakes. They’re really very easy!
- 4 cups of leftover potato/boiled potatoes/frozen shredded potatoes
- 1/4 c diced onion
- 1 egg
- 3 tsp flour
- 3/4 c grated cheddar cheese
- 1 Tblsp dried chives
- Salt to taste
- Into a hot pan of butter and bacon grease I added the tennis ball-sized potato mixture. Once it started to get golden, I mashed them with the backside of a spoon until they were relatively flat.
- Cook about 3 minutes per side.
They’re so dang yummy folks! Happy Trails!
