Well we really have it made these days! I remember when I was young back in the late 1960's and 70's I used to watch my grandma grating potatoes to make potato pancakes. I did it the same way until now. These potato pancakes we're excellent! my grandma used to have them for a side dish with pork roast or chops with applesauce.I will be making them again and again!
This is absolutely the BEST potato pancake recipe!!!! I'm so glad I found it again, thank you!!! This recipe was in the cookbook that came with my Mom's Osterizer blender many years ago. I have made other recipes, but this one always makes my guests gobble them up and ask for more!!!! So it is Easter Sunday and these are going to be hit!!!!!
I have been looking for this old recipe for a long time. I see it originated from the same blender recipe book I had used, but lost. Thank you!
This is the recipe I use. I got it from my Osterizer blender book. It is excellent and so easy made in the blender!
Delicious! I pureed the potato and onion in my food processor, lightly squeezed the mix through a cheese cloth and added the egg and salt without the use of the baking powder or flour and it turned out great. Thanks for posting.
I've tried these twice now - once with red potatoes (low starch) and once with russets/IDAHOs. They come out much better with russets. I only had extra large eggs so I used only one. Also, leaving the batter sit for 10-15 minutes (as with pancake batter) makes these little darlings light and fluffy. These are part of my permanent roster and the recipe is posted on my fridge!
