Potato Pancakes w/ Spinach & Cottage Cheese

I made these for lunch the other day. They were so good, I'm thinking of mashing some potatoes just so I'll have leftovers!

Potato Pancakes

  • Leftover mashed potatoes (1-1/2 to 2 cups)
  • 1 egg
  • Chopped onion
  • Chopped spinach
  • Cottage cheese
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Flour
  1. Mix mashed potatoes, egg, onion, spinach, and cottage cheese well - no measurements, just whatever sounds, looks, feels good to you.  Season with salt & pepper.
  2. Add enough flour so that you can handle the mixture and form into patties.  It will be very messy, and you will want to coat your hands with flour so it doesn't stick too much.
  3. Heat a little oil in frying pan; add patties and fry on first side until browned, flip and cook the other side until browned and heated through.  Serve on a bed of fresh spinach.


I made a couple for me and let my daughter taste them so she wanted some too.  I added a little extra flour before making the rest into patties, and while it handled better, the flavor wasn't as good.  You want to use as little flour as possible for the best taste.
