Welcome to Cooking with Elija, here in quiet Muskoka!
Actually, I do this all the time in Toronto, with my left over fries/mashed potatoes. I really love potatoes.
Last night’s french fries. Mash them up.
Add cheese, onions, whatever (if you want).
Add egg(s) and mix until the consistency is between oatmeal and regular pancake batter (this has two).
Cook in a buttered/pre-heated pan at about medium-high.
Like regular pancakes, when the edges look/are cooked and there are bubbles escaping the tops, flip ‘em!
(Not pictured: four slices of bacon, and probably a whole mango that I’m about to eat. Fresh air does crazy things for your appetite.)
