Okay this is my second recipe involving instant mash (makes me shudder) - so now I'm getting worried as yet again - I enjoyed it!!
These were very simple to make and a nice change from having just potatoes or chips.
The recipe made 4 decent size patties - and I ate all 4!
1 cup cold water
3/4 cup instant potato
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic granules/powder
1/2 tsp onion granules/powder
Whisk together water, egg and all the seasoning in a large bowl. Add the instant powder and mix until coated and the consistency of the mixture should be slightly thick (not thick like you could stand a spoon up in, but not a runny slop either).
Divide the mixture into 4 and make balls with each portion and then flatten out to make a pattie.
Spray a frying pan with frylight and add the patties. Fry for about 10 minutes turning once or twice until brown and crispy.
These were about 1cm thick and were slightly crispy on the outside and soft inside, but if you wanted a more crispier pancake you could make them smaller and thinner.
Next time I might add a bit of spring onion to the mixture or some dried chilli flakes - you could add whatever seasoning takes your fancy!
