One of my favorite Medifast meals are the Sour Cream & Chive Mashed Potatoes. I love that I still get to enjoy some of my favorite foods, like potatoes, while on plan. Inspired by their Front Burner recipe on YouTube, I recreated their fun spin-off recipe for Potato Pancakes, Medifast Style. Now it’s become one of my favorite lunches to make when I’m working from home. These Potato Pancakes are so delicious and satisfying. And since they’re on plan, I feel full and satisfied all the way up until it’s time for my second snack of the day.
First I add my Medifast Sour Cream & Chive Mashed Potato mix to a large bowl.
Then I add in an egg.
And half a tablespoon of parmsean cheese.
And then half a tablespoon of chives.
Then I add a little bit of water.
Next I whisk it all together for at least one full minute to thicken the mixture.
Then I set it aside for about a minute while I warm up my skillet over medium heat and coat it with some non-stick cooking spray.
Once my pan is hot, I add about a third of the mixture to the pan and give it a small shake to spread out the batter.
I cook the pancake for about 40 second to a full minute before flipping over to cook the other side for about 30 seconds.
The finished product is savory and slightly crispy with plenty of zesty flavor thanks to the fresh chives. I love that my Medifast meals are versatile and easy to transform into healthy options like these Potato Pancakes.
Medifast is a portion-controlled weight loss program that helps people lose weight faster and more effectively than traditional dieting. My favorite meals come in packets that I add water to and microwave or refrigerate and are offered in a variety of types and flavors. The meals are quick and easy to prepare, are portion controlled, and many are filled with protein to help keep that hungry feeling at bay. The Medifast GO!™ Plan, their standard plan for weight loss, is medically designed to create a calorie deficit, allowing my body to burn fat for energy. Medifast also offers specially tailored programs to meet the needs of nursing moms, vegetarians, seniors, teens, and people with diabetes or gout. I’ve committed to a year on the program and will be sharing my journey with you along the way.
