POTATO PANCAKES

This one is for Riley at Pig’n’Pancake in Seaside.  Thank you for being a great server and so friendly. You made breakfast enjoyable during our stay.
POTATO PANCAKES

3+ cups peeled, grated & squeezed* potatoes

1 large bunch green onions, minced or 1 small Vidalia onion, minced

1/2 cup self rising flour

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 cup buttermilk**

1 egg, beaten

4 tablespoons butter, melted

  • Sift together the flour, salt and pepper.
  • Whisk together the buttermilk, egg and butter until smooth.
  • Whisk in the flour mixture until well blended.
  • Fold in the potatoes and onions.
  • Drop onto hot griddle and make your pancakes.
  • Serve with applesauce and sour cream or with the Sauerbraten gravy.

*I use a cheese cloth towel as my base. I grate the potatoes on top of it and then bring all the corners together like a knapsack wrapping the potatoes inside. I continue to tighten the turns until I squeezed all the moisture from the potatoes.

**I generally use regular milk and 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar.
