Holly may yell at Oprah day 3

We made it through day one and flew through day two of our quest to attempt the 21 meal plan of Chef Cat Cora as seen on Oprah ¦so what does today hold?

For breakfast we made:

Garlic Mashed Potato Pancakes

Garlic Mashed Potato Pancakes

Let me start by saying this tasted good, BUT I just don't get it.

We started by making mashed potatoes from scratch ¦from scratch at 6:30 am. And after adding a full stick of butter to the mashed potatoes we then FRIED them. Is this why we couldn't have yolks yesterday – we were saving up for this?

The recipe called for 2 cups of milk, but we found that it was extremely soupy after only one cup so we omitted the second cup. Most of the pancakes  turned out more like scrambled eggs. We took the above picture of the best formed one.

The Verdict?

2/5 thought the pancakes tasted OK.

The post cooking reality check:

I will not be making this recipe again unless I have a ton of left-over mashed potatoes that I need to magically transform into something slightly different. This recipe took WAY TOO much time if you are starting from scratch for a family breakfast. My three boys wake early and hungry.
