Potato Pancakes

Potato Pancakes created by Sharon123

I think this recipe came from a German Heritage cookbook, from Fredericksburg,Texas. Grating the potatoes takes the longest time as I like them grated by hand. Try these, they are yummy!

ingredients

directions

  • Grate the potatoes, put in a large bowl of ice water.
  • In another bowl add eggs, finely-chopped onion, flour and salt.
  • Pour the water off the potatoes and place on paper towels, squeezing excess water out.
  • Add potatoes to the egg mixture.
  • Heat the butter, and use a 1/4 cup of potato batter for each pancake, brown good on both sides. This takes some patience.

    Just made these for supper tonight. WOW. I took a trip in the way-back machine to when my grandma (from Germany) made these for us. Awesome! Easy to make and everyone really enjoyed. Thanks!

    Sharon, I am so glad I tried these. They were wonderful and reminded me of the ones my mom would make when I was a kid. They were easy to prepare, the directions were perfect and the taste is just what I wanted. We were eating them up while I was cooking the next batch. Thanks so much for a great recipe and thanks for letting the girls from the Stella Maris "use" you for our treasure hunt!!!!

    Delicious and easy to make. I used seasoned salts and added fresh ground black pepper. These are just like my mom used to make. I will definitely be making these again. Thanks!
