Recently Scott and I had our friends Nick and Tasha over for dinner. I made a stupid amount of mashed potatoes because mashed potatoes are delicious and I knew they’d get eaten as a side dish for dinners later in the week (which makes my life a lot easier). I highly recommend making a lot of food at once and storing a portion of it in your refrigerator until you need it. But don’t make too much, like I did. I made a massive amount of mashed taters, to the point where we already had them like, three times as a side dish and I was sick of them. So I turned them into tater pancakes. And they were good.



  1. Thoroughly combine the eggs and taters or turnips.
  2. Melt 1 tbsp of coconut oil over medium heat.
  3. Spoon some of the mixture into the pan, your first batch should make three pancakes.
  4. Fry on either side until golden brown.
  5. Add the other tbsp of coconut oil and form three more pancakes.
  6. Should give you about 6 pancakes.
  7. Top with sour cream, chives, smoked salmon, apple sauce, whatever.
