    They were okay...I, too added onion, cheese and chives to the 2nd batch as they were a little dry at first. But everyone ate them and they are certainly easy enough to make! Thanks!

    Didn't have any carrots, added parsley and cooked them on the griddle instead of the oven. Very yummy.

    Made for March, 2008 Aussie/New Zealand Swap. Awesome potato pancakes recipe. I used the frozen shredded potatoes and thawed them in the microwave at a low setting for about 3 minutes. I love the fact that they are baked in the oven instead of fried in a skillet. It was great not having to stand over the stove. I had these with sides of sour cream, fresh chopped chives and applesauce. This recipe is going straight into my keeper file. Thanks for another great recipe, BeachGirl.

    My husband would give these more than 5 stars, he loves these tasty potato pancakes. After assembling the potato mixture, I spooned it into those metal cooking rings that you can buy, to give the pancakes a beautiful even round shape, before baking. (Taking the rings off when turning the potatoes over.) I made them for a main meal, so I only got about 8 pancakes out of the mixture. Thanks for posting this recipe!
