These lovelies complemented my fried egg breakfast yesterday. Potato pancakes made from the last of the Thanksgiving leftovers. What's in them? Leftover mashed potatoes (which had been made with milk, cream, and sauteed leeks), two sliced up scallions, a few twists of ground garlic (from our sliced, dehydrated garlic, placed in a peppermill), and a few tablespoons of flour to help the pancakes hold their shape better. Knead all ingredients together with the hands, form the patties, pan-fry them gently in oil over medium heat, a few minutes each side, blot on pages torn from an old phone book. Thank goodness the leftover ordeal is over, huh? Yeah, life's tough.
