Leftover Sweet Potato Casserole Pancakes

Hi y'all!  How was your Thanksgiving?!  We hosted Thanksgiving for the first time ever, and I am proud to say that nothing caught on fire and no one got food poisoning.  :)  I am not a big leftovers person.  This might make me sound crazy...but I am all about eating bad on Thanksgiving and then I want all the food to go away.  Tall Tan Man on the other-hand loooves left overs.  He came to bed the other night with a plate of leftovers!!  Men... {Women, we are all jealous of this, can I get an amen?}.  I was googling last night "what to make with leftovers" and nothing sounded too tempting until I saw {this recipe} from Serious Eats. I made a few minor changes to the recipe, and all I have to say is, 'Does any one have any leftover sweet potato casserole I can have???'  

Sweet Potato Casserole Pancakes

1-1/4 Cups Sweet Potato Casserole {I tried to scrape off the marshmallows}
1/2 Cup Greek Yogurt
3/4 Cup Milk
1 TBSP Maple Syrup
2 TBSP Melted Butter {Plus more for cooking the pancakes}
1 Cup Flour
3/4 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Kosher Salt
Pinch of Cinnamon and Nutmeg


1. Whisk together casserole, yogurt, milk, syrup, and butter until well combined.  

2.  Add in flour, baking powder, soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Whisk/stir until well combined.  

3.  Melt additional butter on a griddle or large frying pan.  Drop pancake mixture on to the griddle using a 1/4 cup.  Using the back of the 1/4 cup and smooth out the pancake to a nice even circle {or oval/octagon/square}.  After about 1 - 2 minutes the edge of the pancakes should be brown and then you will gracefully flip them.  

4.  Add more butter and maple syrup if your heart so desires.  Now enjoy.  

I wonder if I can make left-over stuffing pancakes? Jk... This is my new favorite way to enjoy leftovers!  Do you have any great leftover recipes? Please share if you do!
