Ingredients

  • 4 cups mashed potatoes *
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 oz)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour or up to 1/2 cup flour for creamier potatoes
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp chives chopped
  • 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 2 Tbsp Light Olive oil or Canola oil to sauté
  • Sour cream to serve

Instructions

How to Make Mashed Potatoes:

  1. Fill a 5 Qt pot with water. Add 1 Tbsp salt and peeled quartered russet potatoes (2 lbs or about 7 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered). Cook until easily pierced with fork. Drain well and mash in 4 Tbsp butter then let cool to room temp. Mashed potatoes can be made 1 - 3 days ahead.

How to Make Mashed Potato Pancakes:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine 4 cups mashed potatoes, 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, 1 large egg, 1/4 cup flour and 2 Tbsp chopped chives. Use a potato masher to mash the mixture together until well mixed. If the potatoes are too loose to hold a patty shape, add flour a Tablespoon at a time.
  2. Place a heaping tablespoonful of potato mixture between your palms and form into a round, 1/3" thick patty. Dredge both sides of the pancake in bread crumbs and set on a cutting board. Repeat with remaining pancakes.
  3. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat with enough oil to lightly cover the bottom of the pan. Once oil is hot, add patties in a single layer and sauté 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining patties, adding more oil as needed. I usually have 2 skillets going at once to finish sooner.

Recipe Notes

*Recipe works best with mashed potatoes that aren't super creamy. If they are very moist, you may need a little more flour for them to hold a patty shape. Do not use instant mashed potatoes.

    Our girl scout leader gave us a bag of potatoes so off I went googling potato recipes. This browness and crispiness on the picture looked intriguing. Plus I already had all of the ingredients on hand except for chives. I put in parsley instead and it was perfect. Thank you for sharing! We’re going camping in a few weeks and I’m thinking of putting this on the menu.

            Hi Kailee, it really depends on how large you mold the pancakes. It would be easier count-wise to make 24 slightly smaller pancakes then each serving would be exactly 3 pancakes.

    Natasha, you my dear are indeed a mind reader. When we read your recipes for today we found ourselves with several pounds of mashed potatoes in the fridge looking for something to make out of them. Needless to say the pancakes came out delicious. Mama came back for seconds. I guess the mozzarella tickled her fancy as she said “did you put mozarella in these?” She loves mozzarella. Thanks again for another wonderful recipe. Grampa Joe

      The best tip my mom ever gave me when I started learning was to have all of my ingredients ready before I started cooking anything. When you have a pan of hot food and have to look for that spice you forgot or that marinade you need to put together, for me, that’s when things burn or go south super fast. Follow the recipes at first and adjust them to your liking later on. That tip has served me well over the years.

    Hi Natasha…I had alot of leftover mashed potatoes that were already cheesed up , as I made Perogies a day before. Tonite we were having a beef roast & I found your recipe! Even tho the potatoes were already cheesy with caramelized onions as well…I cut the recipe in half( theres only 2 of us). I followed your recipe & added the motza, egg & flour…along with pepper, and garlic powder. I dipped them into a mixture of seasoned Panko & bread Crumbs & fried them in oil with a tablespoon of butter. These were incredible! Im going to do the remaining half of the perogy mixture…this way instead. So good…I preferred these to the beef roast!! Super Yum!! Thank-you for this recipe!!!

She was always feeding me, but I was a kid; I didn’t remember the names of the recipes (never mind the Cyrillic! *grin*). YAY!!!

    PS It’s so interesting to me how many recipes are “global” even though the global regions are not related! In Ecuador, there’s a recipe almost EXACTLY like this but with small cubes of mozzarella instead of shredded stuffed within the mashed potato “patty;” same ooey-gooey “pull!” They’re called llapingachos (ya-peen-GAH-chos – long “o”). 🙂

    Hi Natasha,
    My mom used to make something similar to these. She would separate the egg white from the egg yoke. Mom would beat the egg white till it was frothy, and beat the egg yoke, dip the potato patty in the froth then dip into the beaten egg yoke. Fry them, came out delicious. Light, but crispy. That’s how I’ve always made, but definitely going to try your recipe. Thanks so much!

      We used all purpose flour for this recipe. Which is a plain flour.

      Hi Colette! The print friendly recipe is at the bottom of each post. Once you scroll there, click on the print icon in that recipe card which will open a print screen, then you would need to click file —> print. I hope that helps! If not, please let me know exactly what steps you are taking and where you are navigating to print our recipes.

    These sound so yummy . . . but I have a dumb question??? Why can you NOT use instant potatoes? Only 2 of us and I use Harvest Earth creamy mash potatoes from Costco. Always have leftovers from just one envelope – they are cooked with butter, boiling water and milk???

      Hi Lannie! I don’t recommend instant potatoes because they are much too creamy and you would have to add excessive amounts of flour for them to hold properly.

    Can you delete flour for glutten free?

      Hi Salvie, I think a gluten free flour would work well in the pancakes.

    The recipe says “2 cups (8 oz) of shredded mozzarella cheese”. I’m not much of a cook, so please clarify, as I’m an OCD man, and 2 cups = 16 oz. I could use 12 oz…but I would risk using too much, or too little, cheese. Thank you, in advance, for your kind attention.

      Hi Slade! Great question. Yes, two cups of cheese is about 8oz in weight not volume. If you are measuring with a cup that would be ounces in volume vs weight. Hope this helps 🙂

    I wish to know if I can use your recipes in our family cook book as long as I give you the credit for it.

    Thank you

      Hi Janis, that should be ok as long as it is a personal collection and not distributed for sale. Thanks for asking! 🙂

      Hi Barbara! Some of readers have baked these and said they enjoyed them that way. One reader wrote: “I sprayed them with cooking spray on each side and I baked them at 400F for about 7-8 mins per side. They were wonderful!”

    I am wondering how many cakes are in a serving. Your recipe says a “Servings: 8 makes 22 potato pancakes ” but you can’t divide 22 cakes evenly into 8 servings. My mom has diabetes so I need to be able to figure out her carb count a little more accurately. Thank you!

      HI Cassandra, it really depends on how large you mold the pancakes. It would be easier count-wise to make 24 slightly smaller pancakes then each serving would be exactly 3 pancakes.

    Hi, I would like to make these, but I tend to burn things on the stove top, could I bake them instead?

    Hi Natasha.
    Can I substitute chives with something else like (parsley or dill). Did you try with something else?

      I haven’t tried this with only parsley or dill but I know those options go well with potatoes.

    Hi natasha
    I was wondering, Will it still taste good if I don’t add chives because we don’t have them, and is it okay if I use a different kind of cheese, lets say like coby jack or something.

      Hi Radomir, I have had readers report great results with using cheddar so I think colby jack cheese would work fine 🙂

    Hi Natasha,
    I’m wondering if I could use my left over boiled potatoes for this🤔? Thoughts?

      Hi Lisa, that could work if they are small and have their skins on. The skins help to keep them together when they are smashed.

    Hi Natasha!
    Can you substitute a different cheese for the mozzarella? I made the chicken fritters, and the mozzarella cheese was a bit overpowering to the chicken and other flavors. Do you think Fontina or Havarti would work?

      Hello Jamie, I haven’t used another cheese because my children love mozzarella best but you can definitely substitute!
