50 Holiday Foods You Shouldn't Eat
Even though potato pancakes are a well-liked holiday substitute for mashed potatoes, they're battered with egg, flour, and breadcrumbs, and then fried in oil. This method makes them crisp and golden brown, but also rather unhealthy. An average pancake has over 200 calories and 11 grams of fat, plus extra saturated fat from cooking oil. And who can stop with just one?
To lighten up your cakes, use modest amounts of egg whites, breadcrumbs, and olive oil. Our potato cakes have only 80 calories and less than a gram of fat!
