I think this recipe came from a German Heritage cookbook, from Fredericksburg,Texas. Grating the potatoes takes the longest time as I like them grated by hand. Try these, they are yummy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grate the potatoes, put in a large bowl of ice water.
  2. In another bowl add eggs, finely-chopped onion, flour and salt.
  3. Pour the water off the potatoes and place on paper towels, squeezing excess water out.
  4. Add potatoes to the egg mixture.
  5. Heat the butter, and use a 1/4 cup of potato batter for each pancake, brown good on both sides. This takes some patience.

Sharon, I am so glad I tried these. They were wonderful and reminded me of the ones my mom would make when I was a kid. They were easy to prepare, the directions were perfect and the taste is just what I wanted. We were eating them up while I was cooking the next batch. Thanks so much for a great recipe and thanks for letting the girls from the Stella Maris "use" you for our treasure hunt!!!!

Delicious and easy to make. I used seasoned salts and added fresh ground black pepper. These are just like my mom used to make. I will definitely be making these again. Thanks!
