Cheese Potato Pancakes

Cheese Potato Pancakes

Watch the video for this recipe:

Here is another quick and easy potato recipe that you can either prepare as a side dish or simply as a snack.  For these pancakes the potatoes are not cooked in advance but grated and squeezed well of any excess liquid. This step is really important to ensure getting delicious crispy pancakes on the outside.

 

Potatoes have always made a great pair with cheese and onion so these ingredients are a must as well. As for the spices besides garlic you can add any others you like best, like paprika, chili, herbs and so on.

 

These Cheese Potato Pancakes turned really great. Really crispy on the outside while the interior is soft and deliciously flavored. You should probably double the quantities as they go really fast. Everybody enjoyed them even the kids. They also can be a great idea for their lunch boxes or to take on the go. Enjoy!

These look really good, but I wonder if there might be a substitute for the flour? Only because the flour in potato pancakes never seems to get cooked through and tastes pasty to me.
Re:

you can consider adding some ground oats instead

I would add rosemary and thyme for some extra flavour. I noticed some people asking about dipping sauce, and they are so easy to make, it's silly to waste money on a bottled sauce. I would just use the sour cream or yogurt base if you prefer, and grate some garlic, add some chilli flakes, or chili sauce of any kind. Alternatively chipotle would be nice as well as an alternative, or smoked paprika. YOu could even use the herbs you used in the potatoes, such as basil, oregano, thyme or rosemary for instance (or any combination there of). Oh and grated fresh garlic far better than powder. I might add that non-organic potatoes have the highest levels of pesticides. (I am not counting there pesticides are put in the seed so through the whole apple or the whole grape).

Chili Garlic Sauce is found in the Oriental section in the grocery store. There's a ROOSTER on the label. I don't remember the brand, just look for the big rooster. It's delicious and hot, so I suggest add by taste.

Those dinner cake are marvelous I've been making them for about 50. Years and it occurred to me to add cheese or even supply a dip. Ketchup was put on the table along with butter and mayonnaise
