Potato Puffers

This past weekend was the first time I'd ever had potato puffers. They were life changing! Really, I loved them. They were sort of pancake-ish, but a bit chewier. So delicious! They were very filling and a great breakfast. This is a great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes. This recipe comes from Steven's great aunt. It's a family favorite recipe and it was fun to try it out.

Potato Puffers


2 eggs
1 teaspoon. salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon. baking powder
¼ - ½  cup milk
2 cups mashed potatoes


Mix flour, eggs, salt, baking powder and ¼ cup of milk with hand-mixer until smooth.  Add 2 cups of mashed potatoes and beat til smooth.  Add more milk if it seems to thick to make into pancakes, it should be much thicker than a normal flour-based pancake.
Plop batter in about ¼ -  ⅜  inch patties. Fry in hot fat (butter is best) until they are cooked through and golden brown. Serve with syrup.

Note: We like these for dinner with omelets and fruit.

  2. Alan requested Potato Puffers for dinner tonight, but I didn't have the recipe. I hoped I could find something online that would be close enough. I'm so glad you put this up--I'm pretty sure it's exactly what he had in mind! :o)
