Matafan AKA Fluffy Potato Pancakes

These fluffy potato pancakes were a family pleasing dish. Baked potatoes were riced, combined with eggs, flour and milk before being lightened up with whipped egg whites. Finally the batter was fried in butter, of course!

Matafan Serving Suggestions

I paired our matafan with vinaigrette dressed greens and roasted chicken for a lovely weekday dinner. I wish I had made more of these little devils. They’d be nice for brunch or breakfast, too
