Now that my taste buds have grown up, I like them. I still prefer the traditional potato pancakes made out of grated raw potatoes. Maintaining the pattern, my daughter loves traditional potato pancakes but does not like the ones made out of mashed potatoes. She will probably like them someday and try to feed them to her daughter.

The bottom line: will we make these again? Yes, whenever we have leftover mashed potatoes we will make these. However, I will not make mashed potatoes for dinner so I can have these for breakfast. If I have plain mashed potatoes, I will add cheese and either garlic or caramelized onions to the potatoes before making the potato patties.
