Eggs on potato pancakes

I am working on using leftovers for breakfast.  In this case, we had mashed potatoes for dinner.  I took the leftovers, shaped them into disks, and put on waxed paper in the refrigerator. The resulting potato pancake with a fried egg was hearty and filling.  My husband REALLY liked it.

Follow this link to the recipe:

Eggs on potato pancakes
½ cup leftover mashed potatoes per person.   Add chives or flavored salt or any herb of choice.
1 egg per person
1T butter

Night before:
Form mashed potatoes into hamburger sized patties.  Refrigerate.
Next morning:
In a large non-stick pan, melt the butter, and fry the pancakes.  Turn after about 2 minutes, when underside is browned.  Make sure there is butter under the pancake when you turn it, or it will stick.  Put the pacakes on a plate, and cover with foil. 

Fry the eggs.

Serve on top of the pancake.

If your pan is fairly large, add the eggs when you turn the pancakes, and cut down on the cooking time..
