Making Potato Pancakes

A traditional Polish recipe that can be doctored for your tastes - sweet OR savory!

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 12 pancakes

Link: www.triingforbalance.blogspot.com

Ingredients:

  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and shredded
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk (more or less depending on your batter consistency)
  • Add ins: either 1/2 cup minced onions or 1 Tbsp each cinnamon and vanilla (some likes it savory, I like it sweet)

Steps:

  1. Combine all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add in egg and milk, whisk together until batter is smooth (2-3 minutes).
  2. Enlist your helper to chop, chop, chop up them taters. We have a handy, dandy slap chopper to get the job done, but you could use a food processor or a grater to do it as well. After you have all your taters shredded, add it to the batter and stir it up.
  3. Now, my great grandmother did these babies in the fryer, but since we like our arteries, I decided to PAM up a skillet and cook them like normal pancakes. Pour 1/4 cup (or so) of batter onto a skillet and cook until bubbles form, and then flip. Repeat until all your pancakes are cooked up!

I live alone. I have been trying to make up a recipe for potato patties or pancakes, using instant potatoes. So far all I have made is a mess. Can one of you Thrifty readers help me out? Thank you.

When I make instant mashed potatoes I always make extra so I can make potato cakes the next day - or a couple of days later. Into a bowl with the potatoes I add an egg, salt & pepper to taste, and a sleeve of Ritz crackers crushed up pretty fine (I almost always use store brand Ritz crackers). Mix well and make into patties. If you have a lot of potatoes, you may need to add more crackers or an extra egg.

Melt shortening in a skillet, med heat, and brown on one side until crispy. Flip and brown on the other side - done! I have even made up the patties and put them on a paper plate - not browned- and frozen them for later use and they are good.

If you are like me. I am always looking for a good way to use leftovers. I hate to throw them out. My grand babies think they are getting pancakes for supper.

When making them, instead of putting flour, into the potato mixture, put in potato flakes, from Hungry Jack or any instant potato product.
