A little snack.

This comes straight from my Mama..my Grandmothers recipe.

Nana’s Potato Pancakes

She used to make these with left over mashed potatoes

2 cups cold mashed potatoes
2 eggs
salt and pepper to taste
flour for breading
oil for frying — Nana preferred Wesson oil, I prefer olive oil.

Mix the potatoes, eggs, salt and pepper thoroughly. Roll into balls the size of a ping-pong ball and flatten to ½ inch thick. Heat oil. Roll each pancake in flour and pat off excess. Place in hot oil and cook until very brown on each side. Drain well on paper towels and enjoy alone or with your favorite condiments. Some examples are fresh salsa, ranch dressing, or ketchup (or is that catsup?).
