3 cups mashed potatoes (preferably made with organic ingredients)
1 organic egg
3 tablespoons organic flour of choice + 1/2 cup organic flour of choice
organic oil of choice for frying
Organic scallions and tomatoes
Organic cheese and/or sour cream
Organic maple syrup or honey
Organic berry jam or fresh berries
Organic mascarpone cheese
In a large mixing bowl, stir together the leftover mashed potatoes, egg and the 3 tablespoons of flour until smooth. Place the 1/2 cup of flour in a shallow bowl or dish.
If you want, for the savory version you can add the cheese for on to the already cooked side of the pancake for about the last 2 minutes of cooking the second side to let the cheese melt. Otherwise serve your pancakes with whichever type of additional garnishes you prefer.
