We're going directly into the reviews of what people thought of these . . . these are all the people who had them, though:)
"They're really good and they're like hash browns kinda and I really liked them." Tara (I was rereading this to her and she said "Just write that. They'll know how weird I am." :)
"They were so delicious that you should make some more." Clint
"They're so good that you should make them everyday." Forrest
"These are really good. I was put the rest of the mixture in the fridge so I could have them for breakfast the next morning, but when I took them out, the potatoes were all brown, so I didn't dare make them . . . that being said: make only as much batter as the amount of stuff you're going to make:)" Aimee
Short-Version Picture Recipe
1. Make the potato mixture/batter.
2. Fry the pancakes.
3. Serve and enjoy. (We had leftover ham from my aunt Kathy, so I put that and water into a frying pan and fryed/warmed it up. It was really good!)
Mom's Potato Pancakes
4 large potatoes, shredded (they can be peeled or not)
1 egg, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon grated onion
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Rinse potatoes in cold water, drain well. Place in a large bowl. Add egg, flour, onion, salt and pepper; mix well. In a skillet, heat 1/4 in of oil over medium heat. Drop batter by 1/3 cupfuls into hot oil. Flatten to form pancake. Fry until golden brown; turn and brown the other side. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with more salt, if needed. Serve immediately.
Have a wonderful day and have some good food!!
