About this recipe: This is a great way to use up leftover mash. You can also freeze them once they've cooled, and then just pop them in the toaster to reheat!
Used different ingredients. instead of onion add two tablespoons of oatmeal and two tablespoons of cheese. A recipe form my grandmother. - 07 Mar 2009

I had always made these sort of hash browns after having leftover mashed potatoes. I have found through the years that cooking them on a lower temperature works better at keeping them together. If you cook them on medium to med-low for about 10 minutes on one side, it gets them very nice and browned which aids in flipping them over. Also, have a spatula that is big enough to encompass the whole bottom of the pancake. Makes sure to completely brown one side before flipping it. It just takes patience. I have also found that the flatter I make them, the better they turn out. If they are only 1/4 inch thick or less, they cook faster and are crispier than if they are thicker. Just a few suggestions to aid in your frustrations... :-) - 07 Mar 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
