You're running late. You've got soccer-ballet-flute-choral practice and you don't have much time to put anything resembling dinner together. Well, I've got you covered with this easy, super simple #WeekdaySupper meal idea. Turn breakfast into dinner with these potato pancakes! Pair with some chicken nuggets and frozen broccoli florets and you've got a meal that will please the pickiest critic at your house!



Bacon Cheddar Potato Pancakes with Dijon Maple Syrup
Makes 15 pancakes

4 cups cold leftover mashed potatoes
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 egg
1/2 Cup white onions, finely chopped
1/2 Cup sharp cheddar cheese, finely shredded
8 Strips of bacon, cooked and crumbled (about 1 cup)

Mix the mashed potatoes, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, milk, butter and egg together in a bowl; stir in the onions, crumbled bacon and cheddar cheese.
Heat a large pan or skillet to medium heat and spray it with non-stick spray.
Scoop 1/4 cup batter per pancake onto the griddle.

Cook each pancake until you start to see the bubbles forming on top then flip it over and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes on the other side (or until the outside is golden brown). Repeat for each pancake until the batter is gone.



Dijon Maple Syrup
Makes 3/4 cup

1/2 cup Pure maple syrup
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
Stir together mustard and syrup until well-combined.

NOTE: Use instant potatoes and pre-cooked bacon to make the pancakes come together faster. For additional flavor, cook your own bacon and then cook the pancakes in the bacon grease.

I *always* make extra mashed potatoes to make potato pancakes the next day. I'm intrigued by your dijon maple sauce. I'll definitely be trying that next time.
