Mashed potato cakes

This is a fantastic way to use up leftover mashed potatoes. I think hubby peels extra potatoes just so he can be sure to be able to have leftovers for this. He is a sly one.

4
2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon chives or parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 egg
2/3 cup pancake mix
2 teaspoons oil
Mix together the mashed potatoes, onion powder, chives or parsley, salt, pepper and egg. Mix thoroughly and then stir in the pancake mix. Drop by tablespoons into a pan with the 2 tablespoons oil, flatten slightly then fry until brown and crispy on both sides.
