Mashed Potato Cakes with Scallions and Parmesan Cheese
I’m know I’m not alone that I look as forward to Thanksgiving Day leftovers as I do the big meal on that day; maybe even more so. I won’t deny I’ve had several holidays when the effort of getting the meal put together has seen me too tired to really enjoy it. But the next day? Perfect.
One of my favorite dishes that I look forward to for breakfast the next day are potato pancakes. I’ll often make mashed potatoes for the holiday that have a boosted flavor profile, like the Lemon Garlic Mashed Potato or what I call my Best Mashed Potato. Those don’t need anything added before they are fried. But this year, it was just regular Yukon Gold mashed potatoes because I knew I was going to make giblet gravy and wanted to keep the potatoes simple. This year I totally indulged myself. A perfect fried egg, these potato pancakes and a side of the yummalicious giblet gravy.
With their crispy exterior and creamy interior they are just about perfect but adding a fried egg and a side of my favorite gravy makes this a spectacular dish for your family; what I think of as the perfect breakfast the day after a holiday. Hurry…go make some now!
