Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
In a large mixing bowl, combine Mashed Potatoes (2 cups) , All-Purpose Flour (1/4 cup) , Egg (1) , Shredded Cheddar Cheese (1/2 cup) , and Scallions (3 Tbsp) until just mixed. It should form into a ball easily and not be too sticky.
Step 2
Flour your hands. Form the mixture into 6-8 patties, sprinkling both sides with more All-Purpose Flour (1/2 cup) as you go, this will help the pancakes crisp up. Add more flour as needed to prevent sticking.
Step 3
Heat up a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add a generous splash of Vegetable Oil (as needed) , at least 3 Tbsp. When the pan is hot, add the patties 2-3 at a time and cook until crispy and golden brown, 3-5 minutes per side. If they are beginning to get too dark, lower the heat. Add more oil as needed.
Step 4
Transfer to a paper towel-lined tray and sprinkle with Salt (to taste) .
Step 5
Serve warm, garnished with scallions, and with Sour Cream (to taste) , and Cranberry Sauce (to taste) on the side.
