Potato Pancakes

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Wendy-Bob

From Falling Cloudberries by Tessa Kiros. They don't look especially quick and easy to make but I think would be lovely served when you know you've got company coming for dinner. Not yet tried (so times are estimated) but look yummy!

These were pretty good. I served these with fresh grated parmesan cheese and creme fresh. Were a good side to the poached Salmon I made this evening. Next time I think I'll add some kosher salt and pepper to them, to give them better seasoning. But besides being a little too bland for my personal taste, they have great potential concept wise to add your favorite herbs and seasonings to.
