Mashed Potato Pancakes

The only potato pancake recipes I see on a regular basis use raw grated potato.  I have to say I never had those growing up.  My husband was actually the one who introduced me to them.  Growing up my mom only made potato pancakes with leftover mashed potatoes so those are the ones I love the most.

After seeing all the colcannon recipes online after St. Patty’s day I was craving them so I made some but with some spinach I had in the fridge.  Of course you can use your favorite mashed potato recipe if you’d rather do that or feel free to leave out the spinach and just use the green onions.  You can also reduce the amount of pancake “batter” you make by half if you don’t have as many leftovers.  I have to say besides green smoothies this is up there on my favorite ways to eat spinach because you can hardly taste it at all.

I also couldn’t choose a condiment to go with these as you’ll notice in the pictures.  In the top ones there is homemade ketchup and the bottom ones have a mushroom gravy – both recipes I’ll post in the near future because they’re really good.
