Great idea! Tweeked just a little. Red onions because that is what I had on hand and also added 1/3 cup of parm cheese from the shaker in the fridg. Husband had no idea that it was not potatoe pancakes! I used super large scoop of mixture...not a good idea...hard to flip and ended up falling apart....learned. Make "patties" about 3" in diameter. I used couple shakes of garlic powder because I was not sure if fresh was what was needed. They turned out great!
