Potato Pancake Recipe

On Unified Arts night, many parents and family members tried potato pancakes. Here is the recipe so you can make them at home:

Potato Pancakes**  (makes 12 pancakes)

3 cups of leftover mashed potatoes
1 eggs lightly beaten
1/2 cup of shredded cheese
3 Tablespoons of flour
2-3 Tablespoons of chopped scallions, onions or any fresh herb
note:  if you wish to use dried herbs, reduce amount by half.

Mix all ingredients together and form 3 Tablespoon sized rounds.  Place the rounds in a plate of flour and gently press with a floured hand to flatten.  Using a skillet or frying pan on medium heat, butter or lightly oil the pan and add the pancakes.  Flip after 2-3 minutes or when golden brown.  
Pancakes can be served on a bed of greens, reheated as an after school snack, or as an addition to any meal.
**recipe adapted from Just a Taste Potato Pancake Recipe

The dressing we served with the pancakes on Unified Arts night was:
Homemade Buttermilk Ranch
1/2 cup mayonnaise*
1/4 cup sour cream*
1/2 cup chopped fresh dill
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
a little salt and pepper to taste
thin mixture with real buttermilk to desired consistency
mix well and refrigerate
*this recipe can be made with low fat/fat free options for heart health.
Yogurt may be substituted for the sour cream.

add 1 heaping tablespoon of spicy brown or whole grain mustard
add 1-2 cloves of minced fresh garlic
