    pattikay in L.A.'s Note:

    This is an adaptation of a recipe I found years ago in Bon Appetit. The original version was way too greasy for us, but I knew it had potential. I haven't tried any variations yet, but I'm sure diced canadian bacon or other flavors of cheese would be good as well. Prep time does not include chilling in the refrigerator.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Place potatoes in a large pot, add enough water to cover. Boil potatoes till tender, about 20 minutes.
    2. 2
      Drain potatoes well and transfer to a large bowl. Cool a few minutes.
    3. 3
      Mash potatoes till smooth.
    4. 4
      Mix in all remaining ingredients. Salt and pepper to taste.
    5. 5
      Refrigerate till well chilled (can be prepared 1 day ahead - I usually am impatient and put it in the freezer for about a half hour).
    6. 6
      These are easier to handle if they're cold.
    7. 7
      Shape potato mixture into patties, using about 1/3 cup for each.
    8. 8
      (The original directions say to form these and put them in the refrigerator for an hour, but I'm always too impatient to do it that way. It probably does make them easier to handle.).
    9. 9
      Spray a large non-stick skillet with non-stick spray (using oil just makes them too greasy).
    10. 10
      Heat skillet over medium high heat.
    11. 11
      Add potato pancakes in batches. Don't crowd the pan - you need room to flip.
    12. 12
      Cook till golden brown - about 3 minutes each side (timing can vary, depending on how quickly your skillet heats up, the consistency of your mashed potatoes - lots of things).
    13. 13
      Basically watch them till they start to look a bit browned and dryish around the edges, then carefully turn to brown the other side.
    14. 14
      Be patient - these can be tricky to flip. I generally manage to mangle at least one of them.
    15. 15
      Serve immediately.

      These were terrific! My Dad always made potatoe pancakes with German meals, but I had never tried, and I LOVED them "loaded". I only got a couple (I made them small) b/c my DD and 2 of her freinds ate them faster than I could make them! I served them with a Lime Sour Cream as garnish - yummy! I did find they worked better if I froze them for 30 minutes prior to starting, kept them in the freezer between batches, and made them small. I also used a timer to make myself be patient and NOT try to flip too soon and ruin them. 3 min per side really did seem to be what was needed, and my gas cooktop needed medium heat. Thanks for a great keeper Patti!

      These are delicious. I had no problem making them and they turned out great. I made them with green onions and diced canadian bacon because that's what I had on hand. I will be trying them again with regular bacon. Love it. Thanks for posting!

      Very good!!I went ahead and fried them in the little bit of bacon grease & a tiny bit of oil.I did all of the refrigerator time called for and it made them real managable. I will be making these again, I put the recipe in my do again cookbook, Thanks!!
