Boil potato pieces in a large stockpot filled with water and liberally salted over high heat. Mash potatoes after 8 minutes of cooking. Season with salt and pepper to taste, then add the remaining ingredients. Mix well and remove from heat.

Heat a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat, and add the butter to coat the bottom. Cook 4-5 golf ball sized dollops of batter in the pan for 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
