Potato Pancakes

 Potatoes are so versatile! You can fry them, bake them, mash them, whip them and even make them into soup! Here is a great recipe when you have left over mashed potatoes.

Recipe: 2 Cups of your favorite mashed potatoes
            1/4 Cup flour
            1/4 Cup cream style corn
             1 Egg
             3 Tbsp shredded onion or green onion
             1 tsp parsley
             1/2 tsp salt
             1/2 tsp minced garlic
             1/8 tsp of pepper
             Vegetable oil to grill

Instructions: In a large bowl mix all the ingredients. On a skillet heat your vegetable oil (like you would a pancake). This recipe yields about 8 medium sized pancakes, I like to make mine smaller just so the kids will try it out. Cook on each side for 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown.

If batter is to thick, you can add milk, if it is too runny you can add some flour.

The onion in the pancake is delicious, but may be a bit too strong for picky eaters. If you want to have your kids try this out, it may be best to leave out the onion and add some kernel corn to it instead.

Another substitute that goes deliciously well with this mixture is tuna. Just drain the tuna first and add. Potato and tuna is a wonderful mixture especially for lent.

I topped the pancakes with some canned soup! It was easy, it was cheap and it was yummy!!
