Oh boy, these were some yummy potato pancakes! I cut the recipe in half and am ashamed to say that my dh and I had no trouble polishing them off! (Even though we ate them with low-fat chicken-jalapeno sausages!) Make for Spring 2011 PAC

I decreased this recipes size and made it for my breakfast today. I've often made 'flattened' hashbrowns, sometimes adding a bit of onion, but I've never used the egg and flour before. I'm not sure I will ever go back! This was so good. The flavors came together really well, and the texture was great. Creamy like on the inside, and crispy and yummy on the outside. Thanks for the new cooking experience, and I know I'll be using this recipe a lot!
