Here’s a delicious recipe to make with mashed potatoes: Ham and Cheese Potato Pancakes with Honey Mustard Sauce
These potato pancakes are made from a base of already-prepared, creamy mashed potatoes. The mashed potatoes are combined with a few goodies to turn them into a batter that is perfect for turning them into pancakes.
I’ve partnered with Bob Evans Foods to create a few recipes showing you what you can do with their line of refrigerated side dishes. Bob Evans’ sides are the #1 selling refrigerated side dish in the country. They’re great on their own or as the basis for quick, easy and delicious recipes.
Bob Evans’ line of mashed potato refrigerated sides are what I’m focused on today. I used their Original Mashed Potatoes for this recipe. They’re made with real potatoes, real milk and real butter. My family LOVES THESE POTATOES. They are great for when you want to pick up a quick side to go with your main dish– so you don’t have to spend an hour peeling, boiling and mashing from scratch. These are a great, quick option to pick up from the store (think of those busy weeknights when you don’t have time to make everything homemade!), and it’s a quality product that your whole family will enjoy.
I do use the mashed potatoes on their own as a fabulous side dish, but today I’m showing you how to use them in a recipe to turn them into something else: Ham and Cheese Potato Pancakes!
With just a few added ingredients, mashed potatoes can be turned into delicious little pancakes. I’ve added flour, ham, cheese, green onions and eggs.
Fry them up just like regular pancakes. They’ll get golden and crispy on the outside and stay tender on the inside.
And they are served with a spoonful of creamy honey mustard sauce. Since you’ve got ham and cheese packed into the pancakes, you can serve them as a main dish, as an appetizer, or as a side dish too.
