Left-Over Mashed Spud Cakes

By • February 2, 2010 • 6 Comments



Author Notes: While living in San Diego during college there was this breakfast spot we would call, "Grandma's. To this day I am not too sure why so other than the fact that their food taste just like it came from the kitchen of a grandma that could cook. The dish I would always order was the egg's benedict with their famous mashed potato cakes with sour cream and home made apple sauce...mmm! I just had to bring this recipe into our home and on a almost regular basis! Sometimes I will garnish with sliced scallions for a mildy spicy herb kick. JennT1981

Serves 4-6 cakes

  • 2 cups mashed potato, 1 day old
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  1. Combine mashed potatoes, egg, flour, milk,salt and pepper; stir to mix well until smooth.
  2. Heat butter over medium heat in a non-stick skillet and spoon ¼ cup of batter into skillet, pressing flat to make a circle.

I made your pancake and it is wonderful...a great companion to the stew. I made a creme fraiche/horseradish sauce for the pancake and it really worked. I won't post a picture unless it is alright with you.
