Vital7 Potato Pancakes

Vital7 Potato Pancakes


  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 cup leftover mashed potatoes
    • 1 lb russet potatoes
    • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
    • 2 tbsp plain non fat Greek yogurt
    • 1/2 tsp each garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper and Ellie’s Best organic mushroom powder
  • 1 1/2 cups grated raw potatoes
  • 1 cup 1-to-1 GF Flour (Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 tsp each garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper and organic mushroom powder
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese (I did a mixture of extra sharp cheddar and pepper jack)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp milk


  1. Sauté onion in a cast iron pan
  2. If you don’t have leftover mashed potatoes of your own and are making my flavorful low sodium version, you can start that now by peeling, cubing and boiling the potatoes in a pot until fork tender, about 20 minutes
  3. While those potatoes are boiling, you can go ahead and peel and grate the other raw potatoes and squeeze out any extra moisture
  4. Toss those raw grated potatoes with the flour, seasonings and cheese
  5. Once your mashed potato potatoes are fork tender, drain them and then use a hand mixer or hand masher from Amazon. I add the rest of the mashed potato ingredients before mashing to save time because too much mixing with a hand mixer will make gummy mashed potatoes and ain’t nobody got time for that
  6. Add 1 cup of those mashed potatoes to your raw grated potato flour mixture. It should be all of the mashed potatoes but if you have extra, eat them because you need a snack, you’re working so hard cooking this lovely meal!
  7. Whisk the egg and milk together and add that to your big bowl of potatoes on potatoes and mix together
  8. Form into balls and then flatten out onto some parchment paper so that there all ready to go for cooking
  9. Fry in batches in the same pan as the onions with some unsalted butter because it’s St. Patrick’s Day and we’re celebrating baby!
  10. I garnished mine with green onion and served with plain nonfat Greek yogurt for dipping and extra veg for balance
