      We loved these potato pancakes! I especially liked the combination of of grated raw potato and mashed potato; it was neither too "cakey" or "hashbrowny." We did also add some minced onion to the mix.

      Loved this! I must say I did check this recipe out in a couple places and the recipe is a standard exactly the same everywhere I looked. But I must say I enjoyed my changes. I grated my potatoes in the food processor so they were a large grate. For the cooked potato I used leftover Parsley, Garlic, & Scallion Mashed Potatoes. I added 1 minced onion, a pinch of red pepper flakes and fresh parsley. When mixed it was not much like a batter so I blender about 1/3 of the potato in the vita mix then mixed it back to the main mixture. This gave me a nice creaminess and crisp texture. I sprinkled with coarse salt. I served these German potato pancakes with Apple Spiced Meatloaf not German but good comfort food! We Really Enjoyed!!!! Thanks MG!
