Some mashed potato pancakes


  1. Mix the first 5 ingredients together.

  2. You can use an ice cream scoop to pick up the pancake mix and put it on an oiled grill or pan (use some butter or oil to grease it a bit so that the pancakes don't stick to the area where they are going to be cooked).

  3. Cook until a side turns golden brown for about 6 minutes. 

  4. Then turn them over and press the pancakes down.

  5. Cook the other side until it browns for another 6 minutes.
