You ever had that situation where you bough too much potatoes and left them a little too long, and they start to grow those nasty little stalks?
No? Anyway, I love potatoes but how many times can u bake and boil them the same old boring way? Besides I wanted to find a dish that I could make for tea or breakfast. So a quick search on Google and wah-la, potato pancakes!
I substituted a few things from the recipe. Mainly margarine instead of butter (I’m sure the latter would have made it taste 10x better but I was out) and instead of the fancy garlic salt I just chopped up some garlic and used regular salt and pepper. I also served them with barbecue sauce and mayo instead of sour cream though my friends preferred Thai sweet chilli sauce
I had some trouble shaping the batter into pancakes. Even with insane amounts of flour the damn thing wouldn’t hold and kept falling apart in the pan. I’m thinking the issue could have been avoided if I had used butter or left it refrigerated for a few more hours.
Although mine ended up looking more like flat tater fritters, I bet they would make a great addition for breakfast along side some cherry tomatoes, bacon and eggs.
