    My mom made these a lot, as they were one of my dad's favorites. Now I serve them to my family at breakfast, lunch or dinner! They are delicious with anything or all by themselves! Enjoy!

      Yum! Thanks to your recipe, I now know that the secret to making good potato pancakes (or hash browns ;) is to squeeze the water out before frying the potatoes. Never could get these to work before... Thanks for posting!

      These pancakes were delicious, crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. I made them in the afternoon, did not let them brown too much. For dinner I put them approx 20 minutes in the oven at 325F to brown more and heat through. Thanks Karen!
