My mother made these from leftover mashed potatoes, too. They were soooo good! I can't seem to make them taste like hers. These sound so good, Eddie.

I have seen my mom make this with fresh potatoes and with left over mashed potatoes. Nevertheless I can't make them like mom, they just don't taste the same.

My aunt used to make these with mashed potatoes also. And, just like everybody else, I've never been able to recreate the taste. What was their secret? Was it just the love they put into them? :-)

That must be it. My mother's potato pancakes were so good and I know I do the same thing. You know, somebody else's cooking is always so good.
