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: recipe #341569 minus the goat cheese. Thanks for posting! Delicious! Reviewed for Veg Tag/December 2012.
