Best Potato Pancakes
I think this is a first, two recipes in one week! All my craft projects are in states of not-quite-finished-ness, so nothing much to blog about on that front. Neither of these is very recipe-ish -- my cooking tends to be rather inexact and spur-of-the-moment. However, here's my method for potato pancakes. These are one of my very favourite things to make for breakfast - or really any other time of day! I like savoury breakfast foods and these are perfect.
|I may have gone a wee bit overboard with the butter.|
Melt some butter in a skillet (or I suppose you could use oil or bacon fat as well, but I love the taste of butter!) Drop in dollops of potato mash and let cook until golden brown on one side. These burn easily so keep an eye on them -- but don't try to flip too early or they'll fall apart. They still taste fine but they look a bit of a mess! Flip over, flatten down a little bit, and cook until done.
Top with more butter, and salt and pepper if needed. They're good with a sprinkle of cheese too! I like to make these and a fruit smoothie for a really filling breakfast or a light dinner.
