Here is another recipe I learned from my former “maw in law”. Love ya Sharon. These are the creamiest mashed potatoes you can get from scratch,so yummy too.

6-8 medium potatoes

a “dollop” of mayonaisse Approx. 3 TBLSP.

a “dollop” of butter Approx. 3 TBLSP.

tsp. salt

tsp. pepper

a splash of milk if desired, just make sure you dont put to much, just a splash, because it will change the consistency and the taste.

Peel wash and cube potatoes, place in medium saucepan and bring to steady boil at medium heat for around 7 min. or until tenter

Drain water out of potatoes, place in large bowl or return to pan.

Add you salt and peeper, then your butter, stir just a couple times, now add your mayo. With and electric beater, mix potatoes for about 1-2 min. or until very smooth. Serve and enjoy!  Serves 6-7.

Nana’s Potato Pancakes

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?).
