Cheesy Mashed Potato Pancakes
Another mouthwatering recipe shared with us by Shanai from Kids Eat by Shanai (kidseatbyshanai.com). We love new ways to use up leftovers, and these cheesy mashed potato pancakes are no exception. Great for the lunchbox, but also ideal for breakfast with bacon, fried tomato and onion, maybe with a small dollop of sour cream too! How good do these look?
