Potato Pancakes

"Potatis Platter This is my Aunt Eva's recipe. My kids love these with maple syrup and my Dad asked for them all the time. They are usually a little wet after mixing which makes it easy to "plop" them on a hot griddle and pat them out a bit. Filling and delicious! If you find you are having problems with soggy pancakes, you might want to put your grated taters in a cloth and squeeze as much of the water out of them as you can. You can also soak the grate in cold water, then wring them out. For OAMC: brown the patties well but don't cook them all the way through. Flash freeze individually and keep in a ziplock bag in the freezer. They will keep for quite a long time. To use: thaw desired number of patties and reheat them in a hot frying pan with a bit of oil or on a greased griddle."

  1. The BEST. Nuff said
  2. potato pancakes were one of the best recipes esspecialy if you add ketchup to it sometimes
  3. My Grandmother made these for us! PA Dutch recipe! LOVE these! Thanks!
  4. They held together well. The flavor was a little underwelming. But I was mostly disappointed that they did not come out crispy. They had a nice brown color but not a crust. Too soft for my taste. Still, we enjoyed them with the tradional sour cream (yogurt) and applesauce.
  5. Good pancakes! I added some garlic and cracked pepper and loved these--they really do hold together beautifully and result in a lovely stack of firm but light pancakes. Delicious with creme fraiche and coarse salt.
