Perkins Family Restaurant Potato Pancakes by Todd Wilbur

From I received an email with this copycat recipe in it. It appears to be different from the other posted recipe on Zaar. From Chef Tom: "Potato pancakes are so good when served with some applesauce. Last week I made sauerbraten and I prepared these Perkins Potato Pancakes with it. I should have doubled the recipe, because the potato pancakes were gone in seconds!"

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all of the ingredients, except for the potatoes, in a large mixing bowl. Beat by hand until smooth. Add the potatoes to the batter and mix by hand until the potatoes are combined. Let the batter rest while you preheat a skillet to about medium heat.
  2. Grease the pan with some butter.
  3. Ladle 1/4 cup scoops of batter into the pan. Cook as many at a time as will fit comfortably into your pan. Cook each pancake for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes per side until brown.

I have been looking for this recipe for years! Thank you so much for posting. It does taste like the Perkins pancakes. I used leftover mashed potatoes with success too!
