I created this recipe from about 2 cups of leftover mashed potatoes from a pork roast dinner. I thought the Parmesan cheese shreds would add lots of flavors. It was a great way to complete our dinner of leftover grilled pork chops. I just can't bring myself to throw away good food. These were gone in a flash. I didn't even get all the pictures I needed. But they sure did taste great and hit the spot for both my husband and me. I wanted to add extra flavor by adding pure garlic juice and they were fantastic. Serve with apple sauce or sour cream, they're great.

Rose's potato pancakes are a delicious and great use of leftover mashed potatoes. They are crispy outside, with a warm, creamy, and cheesy center. Adding Parmesan cheese and garlic gives these potato pancakes tons of flavor. Yum!
