These Potato Pancakes are great. My Husband would eat them everyday. I have been making them like this for years, 55 years as that is how long we have been married. Sometimes I don't add the onions, they are great without them. We like them with just butter on them or with applesauce.

This recipe is quick and simple. Works equally well if you shred potatoes 'Rosti' style, instead of finely grating. Gives a more interesting texture. Great when served Swiss style, with rabbit or game.

Great Potato Pancake Recipe. Similar to te one I use. If you add a pinch of nutmeg and corriander it really "Kicks it up a notch" Chef Gerard
