These potato pancakes came out perfect. Served with sour cream and Applesauce on the side. Yummy! Next time I will double so I can have leftovers.

These are 5-star potato pancakes. Easy, delicious, fast to make. I love these. I made on teensy addition: I added 1-tbsp. grated green pepper. Thanks, great recipe tweetyfan.
