To make potato pancakes using leftover mashed potatoes:

Start  by putting your mashed potatoes in a large bowl. You’ll need at least 2 cups of mashed potatoes to use these measurements that follow.
Add salt to taste.
Add two lightly beaten eggs to the potatoes and add about 1/2 cup milk.
Add 1/4 cup, or more, finely chopped onion if desired.
Now add 1 teaspoon baking powder
Add enough plain flour to make a soft dough that can be scooped and flattened.
Heat a skillet with some cooking oil over medium high heat. I use coconut oil.
Add a scoop of potato dough, about a tablespoon, to the hot oil and fry til golden brown on both sides.
Take the browned potato pancake out of the oil and drain on a clean towel. Sprinkle with salt. Serve with your favorite condiment.
