I am a little late getting this Potato Pancake recipe post up. When I posted my photo to Instagram, it should have gone up the next day. Sadly, I became sick and did not do much else other than sleep. I apologize for making you wait but trust me, it was worth it!
Leftovers are not usually a thing in our home. I already seem to cook for an army of boys and they don’t leave anything behind. I always seem to make way more mashed potatoes than I need, for 6 people. While I am not a big fan of regular pancakes, I love potato pancakes but, I have never tried to make them before. Wait, probably because there are never any left over. Well, I lucked out. The boys graciously left me a ton so, my attempt at it was born.
I am so glad that I decided to go ahead and do these. They are absolutely delicious. The chives are an amazing flavor in these. If you love baked potatoes, you will love these Potato Pancakes. It is a quick and easy breakfast to throw together. I don’t recommend making these in advance. They are best served fresh and slightly crispy. If left in the fridge over night, they lose the crisp. If you don’t mind that, by all means, cook ahead!
The kids can definitely get involved making these too. Royal loves to flip the breakfast. Whether it’s pancakes or french toast, he always gets in there and wants to do it. Hopefully he will grow up to have the same love for cooking, and baking, as I do.

Being a mom of these crazy boys, I am always looking for fast, simple and cheap lunch recipes. Snacks are a big deal for us. I also like to find a way to use up any left overs from the night before. I am usually pretty good at coming up with new things for dinner but, sometimes I just run out of ideas, or don’t have a lot of time.
Here are a few ideas for you.
Tortilla Roll Ups - Spread cream cheese and a couple slices of deli meat onto a flour tortilla… roll it up and eat! I like mine with honey ham. You can eat it burrito style or slice it up into pinwheels.
Vanilla Fruit Salad - Very easy! Fill a salad bowl with large squares of fresh fruit. Whatever kind you like or what is on sale! Pour a carton of Vanilla Yogurt (it has to be vanilla flavored!) over the fruit for a sauce. That’s it!
Traditional Pudding Pops - Prepare a box of instant pudding just like it says on the box. Pour it into popcycle molds and pop it in the freezer. We like Chocolate best but, there are so many kinds of pudding available so, have fun with it! The cheesecake was delicious also!
