These potato pancakes are always perfect to satisfy my fried food cravings. My Dad used to make these ALL THE TIME when I was a kid.
My husband, Jeff, enjoys them with apple sauce. I like them straight up, hot and greasy from the pan. So delicious. Pair with a beer and you got yourself a party!
Here’s the recipe! Enjoy!
