Mashed Potato Pancakes with Goat Cheese and Chives

Author - Serena Wolf
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Yields: 14 small pancakes


  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 3 ounces goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • Salt
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil or butter depends on your preference
  • For garnish: optional
  • Turkey
  • Gravy
  • Cranberry Sauce
  • Whatever other awesome things you can think of


  • Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees. Place a parchment-lined baking sheet in the oven.
  • Place your leftover mashed potatoes in a mixing bowl. Mix the goat cheese and chives into your potatoes, then mix in the flour and eggs and season the pancake batter with salt and pepper.
  • Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large nonstick pan. When hot, spoon heaping tablespoons of batter into the pan. Make sure to leave enough space between your pancakes so that you can get in there with a spatula to flip them! Cook the pancakes for about 2 minutes until tiny bubbles start to form in the batter. When those bubbles appear, flip them over and cook for another 2 minutes on the second side until golden brown. Transfer cooked pancakes to the prepared baking sheet in the oven to keep warm if you like.
  • Heat another tablespoon olive oil and continue cooking pancakes in batches until all of the batter is used up (adding more olive oil as necessary).
  • Serve pancakes warm topped with whatever strikes your fancy. I strongly recommend the turkey, gravy and cranberry sauce combo, but you do you.
