Left over mashed potatoes make a wonderful Cheesy Potato Pancake that can be served alongside fried eggs. Sunday morning heaven on a plate.
I realize that I haven’t posted many breakfast recipes although it is one of my favorite meals on the weekends. Around here Sunday morning is an excuse to eat eggs and home fried potatoes and my husband does not like skipping this ritual. In the cold months of winter I especially find a lot of comfort in fried eggs, potato hash and the fireplace on Sunday morning. It’s the one day of the week when Briana can play in her pajamas while Kurt and I relax and watch NFL Sunday Countdown. I love Sundays!
I tend to make extra mashed potatoes whenever mashed potatoes are part of weekday dinner. I save leftovers especially for Sunday.
Of course I had to make extra on Thanksgiving as well. I knew then exactly what I was going to do with them come Sunday morning, Cheesy Potato Pancakes.
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! We spend the day decorating, cooking and watching football. The tree is up and house has been decked. The only thing left to decorate is the outside of the house. I am such a cheese ball when it comes to the holidays. I love Christmas music, wrapping presents and my Christmas tree. This year Briana was really into helping to decorate it and that makes me really happy. The only thing left is finish my holiday shopping.
