This is a remix recipe that I created using left over mashed potatoes that I had served with a beef Roast. I wanted to make them a little healthier, so I chose to use whole wheat flour instead of all purpose, and by adding the extra veggies gave them a crisp crunchy texture, and they tasted really great. I love them while they are hot with butter or Sour Cream, and my husband prefers to have Apple Sauce with his. No matter how you like them you are sure to be impressed at how tasty these potato pancakes actually are. Give them a try and you will see what I mean.
