Excellent recipe! I love that you've provided the instructions for using a food processor. I used Yukon Gold potatoes and left the skins on, and they still turned out great (no real difference)! I served them the way that my great-grandmother did--with a small sprinkle of sugar, scallions and with apple sauce and sour cream on the side. YUM!! Terrific with fresh kielbasa.

We tried these with burgers one night and they were a great compliment! It took about an hour for 2 of us to peel and shred the potatoes on the mandoline, mix the ingredients and fry up. No biggie since we had to get the charcoal grill ready anyways. We used a pan on one notch above medium and they were great on 3 minutes for each side...4 patties per pan. I put them on paper towels right from the pan so the oil could soak into the paper towel. I also added some garlic salt into the egg mixture. You could also add cheese but we didn't. I made 2/3 of a batch and got 14 cakes. The next time I will do less with only 2 of us, or I will make sure the teenagers are home and they will all be gone! I will most definitely keep this recipe in my binder and make them again soon!!! They would be great with breakfast too!!!

These are fantastic. I have never had these before. I ended up having to grate the potatoes and onion with a cheese grater and I almost did not make them because of that but I am glad that I did.

I mixed everything up and put it to the side while I prepared other foods. I noticed some liquid collecting in the bottom of the bowl and I was a little unsure, but I just pushed the potatoes up on the sides and everything was fine.

Really delicious. My fiance made them for us this morning, and we both really enjoyed them. We can't wait to add some sausage to the mixture!

I have made these 3 times now, and they are hands down the best Potato Pancakes I have ever had -- including restaurant versions. I have ordered them at 2 local restaurants and these were better. I use 3 T of fresh parsley and save a bit to sprinkle fresh over the entire finished batch. Also, I use the 1/2 cup measuring cup to scoop the mixture into the pan (since I use it for the flour why not?) Just makes a bigger pancake with a slightly longer cooking time. Thank you for this recipe!
