Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

These are a nice change from regular potato pancakes, I have even made miniatures of these and served them as hors d'oeuvres to my guests, and they freeze very well.

I made these for my tot, but DH and I were eating them as they were coming out the pan. So good. I added a few garlic cloves and used Braggs seasoning salt. I had an onion already diced so didn't grate it. [The following is meant really as note to myself for the future (as I WILL be making these again since I always have an abundance of organic carrots): I thought the mixture was too "tight" and added an extra egg to make it more wet and "droppable" consistency - it will still good, but I prefer the recipe as is and won't fiddle with the quantities next time.]
