I am not a person that can eat repeats of the same thing over and over.

That includes my holiday leftovers.

Eating a big turkey dinner once is fine, but I am not a leftover Thanksgiving sandwich person.

Nope. I’ll pass. Thanks.

These crispy mashed potato and stuffing pancakes turn the sad leftover sandwich situation into a delicious remake pancake that I can get behind.

Plus these potato pancakes are incredibly easy to make and get delightfully golden and crispy on the outside making for a texture that is addicting.

How to Make

Making these mashed potato pancakes is a snap!

to do it, add the eggs, onion, pepper, potatoes, turkey and stuffing to a large mixing bowl.

Then mix it all together until it is evenly combined.

Once everything is combined, add the butter and oil to a large skillet and melt it over medium high heat.

When the butter has melted, drop roughly 1/3-1/2 cup sized dollops of the potato stuffing mixture into the pan.

Gently flatten the dollops with the bottom of the measuring cup.

You’ll likely be able to fit 3 to 4 in your pan.

Fry the patties for about 2 and a half minutes and then flip them and fry the other side until it’s also golden brown and warmed through.

Transfer the fried pancakes to a plate lined with paper towels.

Repeat this process with the remaining mixture, cooking the rest in batches until all the pancakes are crispy and golden.

Serve with applesauce for dipping and enjoy!

You could also pair them with any leftover cranberry sauce.

Who doesn’t love options when it comes to dipping?

Storing

Store leftover potato pancakes in your fridge for 2-3 days depending on how old your leftovers were in the first place.

Reheat them by cooking them on a skillet until warmed through or laying them on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil and warming them in a 350 degree oven until heated through.

Tips and Tricks

  • These are somewhat delicate and may fall apart if you don’t use enough butter and oil in your pan.
  • If you have a basket air fryer you could also air fry them at 380 for 10 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  • You could lightly coat them in breadcrumbs for even crispier pancakes.
