It was Chanukah and we were eating all kinds of latkes and other foods, fried in oil, so I stamped my foot a dozen times and went on strike. No more latkes. No more grease. No more frying. It was good while it lasted but enough is enough. Over-indulgence is a great way to turn one's back on too much of a good thing.
This all started when I was going to make a concoction, a mashed potato latke, fried in oil but no, I got smart and turned the pancakes into balls and baked them until crispy and had a delicious potato dish that was a bit different. Best of all, it was not fried and actually was grease free.
3 cups leftover mashed potatoes
1/4 cup corn flake crumbs
1/4 cup chopped scallions
salt and pepper to taste
Mix together all ingredients in a medium-large bowl.
