      what an outstanding dish... i made it for supper as part of zwt, and ate it all. I put nutmeg in half and half without to see the difference, prefered the part with the nutmeg. Directions were sensational, first time that i have had a large potatoe pancake that didn't stick, fall etc.

      Made these great 'pancakes' & served them with some chicken strips for a great meal! Especially liked the nutmeg & thyme combo, & I consider this to be a REAL KEEPER! Thanks for sharing! [Made & reviewed while in Germany on Zaar's World Tour 4]

      This was excellent (except for hand grating the potatoes). The potatoes were crisp and very flavorful. I also wish to comment on the terrfic instructions. You made your recipe easy to follow & I feel I learned something new. Thank you Kate!
