It is no secret that I am downright obsessed with mashed potatoes. It’s not something I hide. I embrace my addiction. So when I had leftover mashed potatoes from Thanksgiving I did the next best thing to sitting on the couch with a bowl of them on my lap watching a Lifetime movie: I made them for breakfast. And sat on the couch and watched a Lifetime movie.
This recipe assumes that you have leftover mashed potatoes which, in all honesty, is a rarity in our home. But leftover mashed potatoes are essential because fresh mashed potatoes would result in gooey pancakes. And no one would eat the gooey pancakes. And if no one ate the gooey pancakes then you wasted mashed potatoes. And to waste mashed potatoes is blasphemy. So if you don’t have mashed potatoes in your fridge, make them ahead of time then make these pancakes the next day.
