With this simple potato pancake recipe, your gang can enjoy these crispy and delicious treats, and you'll be the only one who knows how easy they were to make. This simple pancake recipe is guaranteed to be a winner 'cause you'd normally only order them when you're out at a diner. Who knew you could make a simple pancake recipe like this one right in your own kitchen?!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (20-ounce) bag refrigerated shredded potatoes
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, combine potatoes, onion, and egg; mix well. Add flour, salt, and pepper; mix until well combined.
     
  2. Measure about 1/4 cup potato mixture for each pancake and form into pancake shape.
     
  3. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat.  Place pancakes in hot oil and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden on both sides. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter; serve warm.

I always used leftover mashed potatoes ,but this will be for supper tonight with meat loaf.

I THINK THIS IS WOUNDERFUL,AND IT'S EASY AND OOH IT'S SO GOOOD!!

Grab 2 packages of country gravy and pour it over the pancakes, as good as biscuits and gravy!!!! OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THESE ARE GREAT. YOUCANALSO TAKE YELLOW SQUASH , GRATE IT AND FOLLOW THE SAME DIRECTIONS. IT IS VERYGOOD AND A GREAT WAYTO USE UP YOUR SQUASH.

I have made "traditional" potatoe pancakes for years... but this sounds quicker, easier, and probably more KID FRIENDLY. Definitely will give them a try!

Great and easy to make

Thank you for your question! If you prefer to shred them yourself, 3.5 cups is 20 oz.

how many potatoes make 20 oz.?

1lb 4oz

3-5 potatoes are about 1-1/4 to 1-1/3 pounds.

Can you make these up and freeze some before cooking for later use?

Yes you can! Cook them, freeze them and then re-heat them on a baking sheet when you are ready to serve them. Enjoy!

20oz.

my mom used to make these, except she grated her potatoes, i love them/

If I wanted to use fresh potatoes how much would I use?

20 oz.

Hi there potato pancake lovers! The secret for these is using refrigerated potatoes...NOT FROZEN...make life easier and tastier.

can you thaw the frozen potatoes & use them after patting them dry?
