Potato Pancakes

Thanks to Dan Quayle I always spell Potato correctly! So someone on Etsy mentioned Potato Pancakes and it sounded like a good dinner plan. I don't think I have ever made them before but I know my FIL loves them.

Recipe was simple:


4 med. potatoes 1 sm. onion 1/2 c. pancake mix1/2 c. oil 1 tsp. salt

2 tbsp. sour cream2 eggs1/2 tsp. pepper
Peel potatoes and grate into a bowl. Pour off extra liquid. Peel onion and grate into potatoes.

Add eggs, pancake mix, sour cream, salt and pepper. Mix well.
Heat oil until it sizzles. Drop a tbsp. at a time of batter into hot oil. Flatten with a pancake turner. When bottoms are brown turn them over. When done remove and drain on paper towel lined plate. Serve with applesauce, sour cream or just plain.

The stuff looked like barf in the bowl so I figured I was on the right track.

They were quite tasty as well. Mr.Keys put sour cream on his and I opted for a bit of salt.

Even a fussy 5 year old said 2 thumbs up!
