    These were very flavorful! We used precooked potatoes that we mashed, instead of grated. You might have to add more flour for it to form into a pancake without falling apart. Other than that, it was wonderful for dinner! We served it with maple syrup.

    Awesome use of leftover mashed potatoes very easy and delicious I use the roast beef gravy from the night before as a topping and it was fabulous

    Coming from Poland, the home country of potatoes and potato pancace, I had to modify the recipe just a bit to achieve, what's considered - a traditional taste. . I used 3 large potatoes, 3 heapping table spoons of white flour, 1/2 of large onion, 2 whole eggs (yoke & white), 1/4 teaspoon of Turmeric to keep the color yellow, salt and pepper to taste. Instead of olive oil I used avocado oil which cooks much better in higher temperature. Also, to save my hands, I used food porcessor. When frying on a pan, I measured 2 heaping table spoons for each pancace. This recipe gave me about 15 pancaces - enough to feed me for upcoming days.

    It was very easy to make and a great addition to my brunch. If you like potatoes as a part of your meal, I would definitely recommend this recipe!

    Delicious! but I think I made them too big and should have cooked longer. They didnt hold together as well as I thought they would..

    For me, they weren't amazing! i was expecting something more dramatic...then again, maybe i just didnt make it right. i wont make potato pancakes again. I'll just keep it as hash browns.
