Here's a quick and delicious way to use up those leftover mashed potatoes. You WILL need a waffle iron. These are basically potato pancakes (a.k.a. latkes) but without all the greasy clean-up and calories from pan-frying. I usually serve them with fish or chicken and sauteed apples.

These were really good.I topped mine with cheese cuz I like cheese with my potato pancakes and had meatballs on the side. The only thing I will do different next time is add some baking powder to get them a little fluffier

These are delicious smothered with sausage gravy. I also made them Gluten Free by using the Bisquick GF mix instead of flour.

OMG. I've tried many potato pancakes recipes but never thought about putting them in a waffle iron. I don't care how much you modify them, this cooking technique is the key to this recipe. Absolutely perfect and crispy. And without using oil to fry, they almost seemed healthy. Thank you SuperWifey.
