Potato Pancakes

Potato Pancakes

Ingredients

3 cups chilled leftover mashed potatoes
2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tbsp chopped spring onions, green and white parts
1 egg, lightly beaten
3 tbsp plus 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Vegetable oil, for pan-frying
Sour cream, for serving

Method

In a large bowl, stir together the mashed potatoes, cheese, spring onions, egg and 3 tablespoons flour until combined. Using your hands, divide the mixture into 12 portions. Roll each portion into a compact ball then flatten it into a pancake about a 1/2-inch-thick.

Place the remaining 1/2 cup of flour in a shallow dish and carefully dredge each pancake in the flour.

Heat 3 to 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. (Add enough oil to thoroughly coat the bottom of the pan.)

Fry the pancakes, in batches, until they're golden brown and crispy on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes. Add more oil to the pan as needed between batches.

Transfer the pancakes to a paper towel-lined plate and immediately sprinkle them with salt.

Serve the potato pancakes topped with sour cream and garnished with additional chopped spring onions.
