    Ready, Set, Cook! Special Edition Contest Entry: A refreshing twist on potato pancakes, topped with a fresh homemade salsa. This works well as a side or an appetizer, or even breakfast, with an egg on top of each pancake and then topped with the salsa.

      Breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner these are perfect for anytime! I didn't make the
      fresh salsa because I don't like tomatoes in January. For garnish, I put out a platter
      of chopped cilantro, jalapeno, crumbled cotija cheese and sour cream. Served with a simple salad-this one: Winter Grapefruit Salad minus the goat cheese. Thanks for posting! Delicious! Reviewed for Veg Tag/December 2012.

      This is delicious! Thought the beans might make this a bit strange, but it worked perfectly for a brunch type dish. Enjoyed the salsa as well. Thanks!
