When I was growing up my Mom didn't like to make gravy. I've inherited her dislike of gravy and tend to go with the jarred variety. Especially when my turkey is missing a few things like giblets. You thought I was going to say legs, didn't you?
Much like my Mother, I have extra mashed potatoes and no gravy.
I decided to whip up some potato pancakes to go with our leftover turkey and dressing.
They were a huge hit and now I think I'll make mashed potatoes just for this recipe.
makes 8 pancakes
2 cups of mashed potatoes
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup heavy cream (you know you have some of this left too)
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Combine mashed potatoes, flour, milk, egg, onion powder and salt. Plop (this is a known cooking term, trust me) medium sized mounds of potato mixture onto a pan that contains a couple tablespoons of vegetable oil. Fry over medium heat for a few minutes, until the under side is getting brown. Turn the pancakes and smush(yes, spellcheck...smush is a word) with the spatula. Cook for another couple minutes until that side is brown.
