Potato Pancakes Naturally Gluten Free

This past weekend we had a wonderful dinner of steak, corn on the cob, cucumber salad, and Gorgonzola mashed potatoes. Yum and all naturally gluten free! The mashed potatoes are a favorite of Hubby’s, a restaurant we used to go to had these for a long time and he fell in love. I don’t really have a recipe for them, just make mashed potatoes like usual with some milk and butter added while you’re whipping them and then add about ½ C of Gorgonzola cheese whipping it really well. Taste test to see if you want more added before serving these yummy taters. We had a lot of these left over and I wanted an easy dinner so I decided to make Potato Pancakes, you can’t go wrong with these.

Potato Pancakes
Adapted from AllRecipes

2 C mashed potatoes
1 egg beaten
¼ C shredded cheese - for dairy free use Daiya
5 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
¼ C copped green onion

Preheat your griddle to about 400 F. In a bowl combine the potatoes, egg, cheese, bacon, and onion. Drop on the griddle and flatten to ½ inch thick. Fry until brown then flip and fry on the other side. My potatoes weren't very thick, they were more on the runny side, so I had to fry them for quite awhile before I could flip them. I had a lot of ugly potatoe pancakes from them not being fried enough but if your potatoes are thick you won't need to fry them for quite as long.
We like these as they are and don’t add a thing to them.
