"I want to lie, shipwrecked and comatose, drinking fresh mango juice..."
Anybody know how to make potato pancakes out of mashed potatoes? All of the recipes I find are for using grated potatoes.

And for good reason. Mashed-potato pancakes tend to turn into a gluey, unpalatable mess--if they don't fall apart in the pan first. If you must, dip cold mashed-potato patties in beaten egg, than dredge in flour before frying at a fairly high heat. They'll probably at least crisp up for you.

Don't just dip them, beat the eggs into the potato, then add a little flour (matza meal is better). A little grated carrot or crisp gribben is good, too. They will get crisp, golden brown and will hold together nicely. Not real latkas, but a good way turn leftovers into a Sunday breakfast.
You come home from work, leftover mashed potatoes, no time or energy... chopped celery, onion, tuna--as above. Ain't haut cuisine, but better than processed crap...

Almost anything is better than a latke made from latke mix.

espresso, make it a quad
Sweat a little
bit of fine diced onion in butter and blend in with the mashed potatoes. Then
combine one egg per two cups of potatoes, then form two inch patties from the
mixture, finally melt some butter in a heavy pan and fry until golden brown.
It is better to used grated potatoes, but you need to use up leftover mashed
