Using instant potato flakes and an instant pancake mix for my starter, I'm always ready for my B-and-B guests. Works great if you're cooking for 2 or 20. Great by themselves -- or top with bacon, poached egg, and cheese (we like applesauce on the side, also.) Great finger food, just fold it over a slice of cheese or bacon.

  • Grease a griddle or large skillet, and place over medium heat. Drop pancakes, 1/4 cup at a time, onto the hot griddle, and cook until the edges look dry and 1 bubble appears in the center, about 3 minutes. Flip the pancakes, and cook until browned on the other side, about 3 more minutes.

Cook's Note

I like to make a "starter mix." After buying the boxes of instant potatoes and complete pancake mix, why not use them all? I combine 2 cups potatoes and 1 cup pancake mix in a large bowl. Then I continue this ratio until all of the flakes are gone. Store this starter mix in an airtight container. Then just scoop out the amount needed.
