Ah, leftover mashed potatoes!  No, I don't have any, but if I did I'd be
using them like my mom used to.  Mashed potato pancakes.  Sometimes I go out
of my way to make way more mashed potatoes than I need just for these.
Chill about 3 cups of mashed potatoes. Mix in 1 slightly beaten egg, some
minced onion and a little minced garlic. Pat your hands with some flour and
form the cold potato mixture into patties. Brown in hot oil or a blend of
butter melted into oil over medium-high heat until golden brown on both
sides.

These are good as a side with dinner and also work well with bacon or
sausage &amp; eggs for breakfast.

These are different from Latkes or more traditional German potato pancakes
in that they don't use grated potatoes, although I love those too :)

Oh, you make me hungry for mashed potatoe pancakes.  This is a staple in
Jewish homes during the Passover holiday, only the way I make them, I
misx a little matzoh meal into the potatoes and use more of the meal for
a lit=ght coating, since flour cannot be used.

For some weird reason, I never think of making that dish at any other
time.

<G> I've often lingered over matzoh meal while shopping but have never
purchased any.  Next time, I'll buy some and give it a try :)

If you do, follow the directions on the package and make matzo balls. Make
sure you use salt and pepper, nothing worse than bland matzo balls. Don't
skimp on the waiting time, otherwise you'll have rocks.
Cook them in water that's been flavored with some chicken stock (maybe a
cupful in a couple quarts of water) and then serve in a bowl with good
hearty homemade chicken stock and those VERY thin egg noodles.

And you will understand the expression "Jewish Penicillin".

There is nothing better in all the world than chicken soup with matzo balls
and thin egg noodles.

I think it might even be better than sex!
LOL

Only if served with a thick length of bright orange carrot.
