Mashed Potato Pancakes

If you know me, you know potatoes are my favorite food.  You can make them in so many different ways!  I just never get sick of the variety.  And these might be my new favorite form of tot.  They were soooo delicious.  I also used the leftover batter as a base for a breakfast casserole the next day.  DIVOOM!

{What you need}
5 pounds potatoes, you can peel if you want
1 large onion
3 eggs, beaten
2 1/2 cups Bisquick, or the like
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Boil the potatoes until soft, about 15 minutes.  Drain and put back in the pot.  With a cheese grater, grate in the onion into the pot.  Add the beaten eggs, Bisquick, salt and pepper.  Mix and mash thoroughly until all ingredients are evenly incorporated and you have a batter the same consistency as mashed potatoes.  Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Form pancakes from the potato dough, about the size of your palm.  Cook in the oiled skillet, about 3-4 minutes each side.  Serve with sour cream and avocado, with a side of eggs, easy over.
