This is a traditional potato pancake recipe, and is a wonderful comfort food. Serve with applesauce and sour cream for a light dinner, or with roast chicken for a hearty winter meal. You can use more flour if the mixture seems too wet.
4 cups cold mash potatoes
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 eggs well beaten
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Mix mashed potatoes, eggs, onion powder, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl;
stir in the Cheddar cheese.
Form the mixture into 8 patties.
Pan-fry the patties in the oil and butter until crisp on each side, about 4 minutes per side.
