"Crispy, golden and cheesy! Good use of leftover mashed potatoes. This recipe is very versatile: you can add minced garlic, chives, or 1/4 cup of any shredded raw vegetable, or substitute the cheese with a tablespoon of sugar and serve with maple syrup."

My Mom has been making these since I can remember, but without the cheddar cheese. The cheese makes them much better. I serve them as a side - as you would hash browns - with bacon & eggs. Frying them in the bacon pan doesn't hurt either. The only reason I didn't give this recipe 5 stars is that it's not quite as good as potato latkes. But, it is good and is a great use of leftover mashed potatoes. If you're making these for the first time, I recommend green onions or chives. Also, be sure to make the pancakes more like the size of sausage patties. If you make them too big, they'll fall apart when you turn them. Thanks for sharing this Deanne.

These potatoe pancakes were awesome. I did add 1/3 cup flour to pancakes together. I also added a splash of milk to get the right consistency and bacon bits. Served with sour cream. So delicious...Will definately make them again...Thanks...

I made these tonight and they were a big hit! I did some alterations, however, I did use the cheese, but I also added 3 tblsp. flour and some fresh snipped chives. I also added a teaspoon of garlic powder and a teaspoon of hot sauce and salt and pepper. My family loved them. I will be making this one again! A great way to use leftover mashed potatoes!
