I was invited by Sea of Book of Yum to be part of her Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Event and, after a lot of thought, I decided to focus on leftovers. As Americans gear up for Thanksgiving, all the food magazines and websites and blogs have delivered a huge array of Thanksgiving dinner and dessert ideas and suggestions. Leftovers, though, are practically a footnote taken into consideration.
These potato pancakes are made with leftover mashed potatoes. The texture is not that different, except now that they’re fried. Depending on how long you fry them, they’ll be crisp on the outside and soft inside. Of course, you can also use this for any other time of year that you have leftover mashed potatoes. (Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving last month. Technically I didn’t, as I was away in Fiji then and Thanksgiving isn’t celebrated there; instead it was Fiji’s Independence Day.)
