How to Make Potato pancakes


  1. I use leftover mashed potatoes that I have in the fridge. Usually it's about 2-3 cups worth. I heat them in the microwave just enough to soften them up so they're easier to mix up with the eggs
  2. while the potatoes are heating up beat 3 eggs together in a medium sized bowl.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in large frying pan.
    Mix potatoes with eggs until well blended. Toss chopped green onions in and mix.
  4. Using a 1/4 cup size measuring cup drop potato mixture onto hot frying pan.
    Cook over medium heat and when edges turn crisp and golden flip. Cook a few more minutes on other side until golden and serve.
