In a large mixing bowl, mix together your ingredients. Then place the bowl in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes. This will help make the mixture easier to work with when forming your pancakes.
Preheat your air fryer to 390 and lightly spray the basket with nonstick . Remove the bowl of with the pancake batter in it from the refrigerator. Use a large spoon or scoop to scoop out a chunk of the mixture then form it into ball. Flatten the ball to ½-3/4? thickness and place it into the basket. Do not overlap your pancakes, you will most likely be making more than one batch.
Tip: Spray your pancakes with olive oil before baking them for both taste and moisture. Bake your potato pancakes for five minutes, flip them over and respray with olive oil if needed. Continue to cook for another five minutes or until they are done. Mashed potatoes may not need as long as the grated ones to air fry.
