Ingredients

  • 3

    cups chilled leftover mashed potatoes

  • cups shredded cheddar cheese

  • 2

    Tbs. chopped scallions

  • 1

    egg, lightly beaten

  • 3

    Tbs. + ½ cup flour

  • oil for pan-frying

Directions

In a large bowl, stir together the mashed potatoes, cheese, scallions, egg and 3 Tbs. flour until combined. Divide the mixture into 12 portions. Roll each portion into a compact ball then flatten in into a pancake about 1/2 inch thick. Place the remaining 1/2 cup of flour in a shallow dish and carefully dredge each pancake in the flour. Heat 3-4 Tbs. of oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add enough to thoroughly coat the bottom of the pan. Fry the pancakes, in batches, until they are golden brown and crispy on both sides, 3-4 minutes. Add more oil to the pan as needed between batches. Transfer the pancakes to a paper towel lined plate and immediately sprinkle with salt.
