Gwynn E. of Knoxville, Tennessee shares, “My mother was making fried potato patties out of leftover mashed potatoes and accidentally stirred in pancake mix instead of flour. I’ve made mine that way ever since.”
I love potatoes, mashed ones especially. This company-worthy version is a great accompaniment to the beef roast I serve at our holiday meal. Cream cheese adds richness while garlic delivers distinctive flavor.
Tired of the same old mashed potatoes, I whipped up this new family favorite. We can't get enough of them at our house. Often, I'll prepare this dish ahead and refrigerate it. Then I bake it just before serving.
Sour cream and cream cheese add delicious dairy flavors to these potatoes. They're special enough to serve guests and can be prepared in advance. Since I'm a busy mother, that's a convenience I appreciate.—Melody Mellinger, Myerstown, Pennsylvania
