Great little lunch, and definately can taste the onion flavor. Also like the fact that combined with the cheese made for some real flavorful Potato Pancakes. Other than adding a dash of perrer made recipe down the line. Also no problem with the cakes falling apart either. Made for New Zaar tag (24 hour rule).
Oh my stars, these were delicious. Is there a ten star option on here? I did take some shortcuts...I used a bag of refrigerated shredded potatoes that was in the back of my freezer, and since they had some southwestern seasoning on them I used sharp cheddar instead of gouda. DH was worried; I never ever fry anything and when I do it doesn't usually go well, but he was thrilled with the result and sends his thanks to you, Syd :). I was concerned about them holding together as they sort of fell apart when dropped in the oil, but the cheese really held them together just fine. This is absolutely a keeper, thanks for sharing!

Sydney Mike, these are very tasty potato pancakes! I like the addition of cheese; it gives them a different flavour than youd normally have. The dough was very easy to work with and I had no issues with the pancakes falling apart whatsoever. I also liked their crispy outside yet moist inside. Just the way I wanted them to be. For me this recipe didnt yield 12 but only 6 pancakes. So next time Ill double up. Thanks for sharing this! Made for Veg'n Swap # 7 February 2009.
