Irish Zucchini and Potato Pancakes Recipe

  • 1 cup prepared mashed potatoes
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons fine sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 small zucchini, shredded
  • canola oil, or as needed, divided
  1. Stir mashed potatoes, flour, milk, egg, butter, and sea salt together in a bowl. Add shredded potatoes, Cheddar cheese, and zucchini; stir until batter is well-combined.
  2. Heat 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, drop batter by heaping tablespoons into hot oil. Cook, turning once, until golden-brown on each side, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining oil and batter.
