Top Review by Baby Kato

These were yummy Coasty. I cut the recipe down for one person. It worked really well. These potatoe pancakes were awesome, flavorful and quick and easy to make. I enjoyed them for lunch yesterday. I garnished with sour cream, coarse salt and sliced green onions. Thanks for sharing your nana's recipe. I will be making these again. Made for Aussie Swap #39 :)
