Oil for frying
2 cups mashed potatoes
¼ cup flour
Freshly cracked black pepper
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ onion, finely diced
3 tablespoons fresh chives cut small
Mix all ingredients for potato cakes in a large bowl. If mixture is too thin, add more mashed potato or if you have to, add a bit more flour.
Heat a few tablespoons of oil at a time in a frying pan or less oil if using a griddle. When oil is hot enough for frying, scoop about ¼ cup batter in a measuring cup and drop into hot pan. Cook both sides golden brown and lacy.
Serve with sour cream or apple sauce.
