If mashed potatoes are not eaten immediately, they become very gray, cold, and tasteless. But this product can be a great base for other independent dishes. For example, delicious and very satisfying flatbreads.

The idea of making potato and mushroom cakes with mashed potatoes was published on the Instgaram page of food blogger Inna Levenets (inna_levenets).

2. Roll the dough into a ball, divide it into 6 parts, and make small balls from each part. Use your hands to form cakes. You can make them very thin, like pancakes. Or you can make them thick, like pies. The thickness of the flatbread will determine how long it takes to fry. Thin ones fry faster.
