Pokeys' Potato Pancakes ™

This is a great recipe for leftover mashed potatoes. This is a based on my grandmas' recipe. You can use what herbs and spices you like. You can also add 1 egg, if needed.

2  - 3 c mashed potatoes
1/8 c. diced onions
1 - 3 T oil
1 clove garlic 
1/8 - 1/4 tsp. each: salt, pepper
1/2 tsp. dried parsley
1/8 tsp. each: dried chives, fresh lemon juice
Lemon zest
Pinch each: turmeric, red pepper flakes
1 egg (optional)

Take potatoes out of refrigerator to warm up for a few minutes.

Peel, rinse and diced onions.

In a bowl combine potatoes, onions, garlic, spices, herbs lemon juice, zest.

With clean hands mix potato mixture. Add 1 egg if needed and form potatoes into 8 - 12 pancakes.

Pre heat pan to medium high heat. Lower heat to medium, add oil. 

Add pancakes to pan and cook for 3 - 4 min. or until brown on one side. Turn pancakes over and cook on other side for 3 - 4 min or until done. 

Drain pancakes on a plate lined with paper towels to remove excess oil. 

Serves 4 - 6.
