Red Potato Pancakes

I have to admit one of my comfort foods are Potatoes. It really does not matter how they are cooked it just makes me feel better. Potato Pancakes ranks top of the list!

If you have never made these before you must give them a try. They make a great side dish with dinner, lunch, breakfast, or even an appetizer. As an appetizer serve them with bowls of toppings that guests can top themselves.

You can also take this recipe and add shredded vegetables into them like zucchini or carrots. It is a great way to hide vegetables. Your kids will love them! Some people even like to add a breakfast meat like diced ham or bacon pieces.

Once these delicious potato cakes are made, you can top them with whatever you like. A few suggestions are sour cream, scallions, applesauce, ketchup, or plain and simple salt and pepper. Would love to hear from you! Any comments or suggestions are appreciated. Enjoy!

  1. Hey, I tried this recipe, except I added some grated Swiss and Mozz cheese and some garlic powder and parsely.
    To cook it, I put it in a shallow pan and baked it in the oven.
    I served it with turkey burgers and topped it with sour cream. Yumm! Thanks for the suggestion :)
