Crispy Potato Pancakes
Yield: 4 servings
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes

2 1/2 cups mashed potato
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
salt and pepper, to taste
2 large eggs, beaten with 1 tablespoon milk
1 cup panko breadcrumbs
olive oil, for frying

1. In a shallow dish, combine flour, garlic and onion powders. Season generously with salt and pepper.
2. Divide the mashed potato into 8 equal portions and form each into patties.
3. Dredge patties in the flour mixture. Dip in the egg/milk mixture, then coat with panko breadcrumbs. Shake to remove excess. Repeat the same process for the remaining patties.
4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and coat with olive oil. Cook the patties until golden on each side. Transfer onto a paper towel-lined plate. Top with sour cream or plain greek yogurt.
