I Turned This Thanksgiving Leftover Into This Delicious Dish

 By: The Food Hunter

Growing up, Thanksgiving, like most holidays, was always a big celebration at our house. My mom spent hours in the kitchen cooking food while the rest of us spent hours in the kitchen eating what she made. And although we did a decent job we never quite finished everything. 

As much as I loved our Thanksgiving meal; eating leftovers was never my thing. Microwaved stuffing or dry turkey; didn't appeal to me.  However, there was one item on our holiday table, that I could effortlessly eat over and over. The infamous sweet potato casserole, when spooned and added to pantry staples transforms nicely into an amazing, post-feast breakfast.

If you find yourself with leftovers of this Thanksgiving side-dish give this delicious breakfast recipe a try. 

Sweet Potato Casserole Pancakes

makes 6 pancakes

1/2 cup leftover mashed sweet potatoes
1 large egg, slightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Place mashed sweet potatoes, eggs and milk in another bowl. Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix until just combined. 

Set a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and add a small pat of butter. Once melted, drop 1/4 cup portions of the sweet potato batter onto the preheated skillet. Cook until bubbles form on the top of the pancake, 2 to 4 minutes, then flip and cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes. 

Serve with your favorite maple Syrup. I really enjoy Runamok star anise infused syrup.
