For yesterday's breakfast I used leftover mashed potatoes to make these mashed potato pancakes.
This is an easy recipe! We had a boatload of mashed potatoes leftover from Thanksgiving and this was a quick, easy way to use them up. I was worried that they would stick, but my non-stick pan worked really well (it's new).
Enjoy these vegan mashed potato pancakes for breakfast, or you could even pair it with a main dish and enjoy as a side or appetizer.
Vegan Potato Pancakes from Mashed Potatoes
This mashed potato pancakes vegan recipe is perfect for when you have leftover mashed potatoes and don’t know what to do with them. And, it's a great way to transform them and get an entirely new purpose.
However, mashed potatoes can keep for a few days with proper storage. Check out this article to find out how to get the most out of your mashed potatoes. This is great for those who might want to wait a few days before having potatoes again.
What's also great about this is that these are eggless mashed potato pancakes! A vegan and plant based delight.
First, in this vegan mashed potato cakes recipe, I highly recommend using a non-stick pan. This prevents the pancakes from sticking, mine was new and it worked really well. And of course, we don't use oil in our plant-based diet, so investing in a good pan will make preparing plant-based meals easier.

When considering what to make out of leftover mashed potatoes, don't be afraid to switch up the flavors and get creative.
The toppings are endless but remember to keep it plant-based. You can add fresh herbs like thyme or marjoram. Maybe even try and go the savory route with vegan sour cream and capers or green onions.
Of course, you can also opt for a sweeter flavor by using syrup and fruit. Applesauce is another interesting flavor to try.
