Potato Pancakes Recipe #FamilyMeals with Wesson

Potato Pancakes

Every year about this time we have so many leftovers from the holidays that it is almost wasteful not to try to figure out something to do with them all.  The Leftovers Guide for Dummies is a brilliant idea I am participating in on behalf of Collective Bias.  Each blogger is tasked to come up with a recipe using leftovers from previous meals for the guide to leftovers.  I chose Potato Pancakes fried in Wesson oil I bought at a recent trip to WalMart.

Recipe: Potato Pancakes


  • Leftover Mashed Potatoes
  • Egg
  • Flour
  • Wesson Oil
  • Pepper
  • Onion

In medium bowl combine 2 cups mashed potatoes, egg, 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 of a small onion chopped, and black pepper.  Heat skillet with 2 T of Wesson oil.  Make small patties with potato and fry until golden brown.

These are great for breakfast or as a side to any meal.  I sometimes add garlic and Parmesan cheese.  I always use Wesson oil by ConAgra though because it has 0 Trans Fats and it is 100% natural.  You can taste the difference.  Try it some time.

Disclosure: I was compensated by Collective Bias for my shop and recipe, but opinions are solely my own.


  1. Oh my god, I was soooo craving potato pancakes! My grandma made them all the time. She used shredded potatoes, but my mom made them the way you do, with leftover mashed. One more recipe for the pregnancy cravings!
