Parmesan Mashed Potato Pancakes

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I am guessing that most people will have an abundance of Mashed Potato leftovers.  At my house, we eat a lot of Mashed Potatos (My wife is addicted), so I have always looked for new and inventive ways to use the leftover Taters.  Well last night I tried something new and it turned out fabulous.  I call these my Parmesan Mashed Potato Pancakes.


Mashed Potatos

Chobani Plain Non Fat Greek Yogurt

Salt Pepper

Parmesan Cheese

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Panko Bread Crumbs

In a mixing bowl combine leftover Mashed Potatos, Chobani Plain Greek Yogurt, Parmesan Cheese, Cracked Pepper, Salt, and Panko Bread Crumbs.  Mix all ingredients together until the mixture has enough body to be able to form patties.  The amounts of each ingredient depends on how much leftover Mashed Potatos that you have left.  Once you have formed your Potato Cake Patties, heat enough Extra Virgin Olive to coat your favorite stove top pan.  Preheat pan on Medium High heat.  Once heated, drop them onto the pan and let them cook for approximatly 5-8 minutes per side.  Flip over only once if possible.  Once they are nice and crispy on each side, you will have a great tasting, different side dish to serve with bacon and eggs for breakfast, or with a nice Steak and Asparagus for a fancy dinner.  Give these a try and let me know how you like them!
