This light and novel twist on traditional potato pancakes will wow you! Our Mashed Potato Pancakes use some shortcuts, but the tasty result is all that matters.

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup mashed potato flakes (see Notes)
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 cup crushed oven toasted corn cereal, like Corn Chex

What to Do

  1. Prepare mashed potatoes with water according to package directions.

  2. Stir sour cream into potatoes. Shape potato mixture into 3-inch cakes.

  3. Preheat large nonstick skillet with 1/2 teaspoon oil over medium-high heat. Coat 3 to 4 pancakes on both sides with crushed cereal and place in hot skillet. Cook about 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until crisp. Repeat process, adding more oil as needed.


Feel free to use an equal amount of prepared warm mashed potatoes in place of the mashed potato flakes.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

We're sorry to hear you aren't pleased with this recipe. All of our recipes abide by the ADA's recommended nutrition guidelines, which suggest less than 60g of carbs per meal. We certainly don't advise eating the entire recipe, but we see no harm in having a small portion alongside a lean protein and a large serving of vegetables.

Many people have to comment negatively, if it is not for them just shut up and don't make it!!!! Great recipes "TEST KITCHEN TEAM"!! Marie

This does not seem very smart for a diabetic. White potatoes, frying in oil and chex mix? Why not sprinkle it with powder sugar as well, but you did use low fat sour cream.
