Have a box of instant potatoes and not sure what to do with them?
This morning I had a hankering for potato pancakes so I did a search for any recipes that might be brave enough to incorporate instant mashed potatoes. I found an Instant Mashed Potato Pancakes recipe at Food Wishes. Food Wishes is a foodie blog including recipes with video instructions by Chef John.
I made these Instant Mashed Potato Pancakes for breakfast and followed John's recipe, except I had to add a little more instant potatoes to mine to get the correct consistency. Next time I'll add less water. Another slight adjustment I made to the recipe is omitting the vegetable oil because I cooked these on my Grandmother's non-stick electric skillet.
They are pretty darn good all by themselves but perfect with a dollop of sour cream as suggested. I put my pancake in a bowl my dad made back in 1967. He used to throw a lot of clay around back then and our whole family has cherished pieces of his handmade pottery.
