Blue Ribbon Recipe

Don't toss leftover mashed potatoes from your holiday meal. Use this recipe to recreate them. More like an old-fashioned hoecake, these are not your ordinary potato cakes. They're a cross between a potato pancake and corn cake. Dense, with a cornbread texture, serve these as a side dish or a snack. Top with a pat of butter for a savory treat or a drizzle of honey for something sweeter.
