Here is another quick and easy potato recipe, that you can either prepare as a side dish or simply as a snack. For these Cheese Potato 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!

Can these be frozen? Do you have to cook first and then freeze or how can they be frozen.
I've never tried freezing them .. but I guess will be fine if frozen after cooking..

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.
you can consider adding some ground oats instead

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.

Ta for the recipe… these are yummy. Made a couple of changes – instead of garlic powder, I used dried mixed herbs, and instead of onion (none in house) used chopped, lightly fried bacon. Worked really well and am planning to try them out on the rest of my family very soon 🙂
yes, this is really great and simple, thank you – this web is wonderful! regards from austria, michael
great receips, thank you so very much!!!

Hello – does it matter which type of potato to use? Large waxy potatoes are hard to come by here and majority of potatoes are the Fluffy potatoes typically used for mash or for roasting.
I love savoury recipes and I love your channel. Your execution of your videos is spot on. Keep up the good work because you are really very good.
All the best.
You can use any tipe of potates.
I absolutely love this recipe and after making it a few times I tweaked it by doubling the cheeses and the garlic powder and cutting the salt in half. I also use less of the garlic chili sauce as it is very spicy. I just add a tiny bit at a time until I get the right taste that I want. Not too spicy, but just a little kick. Simply delicious and filling. The dip for this is also great with chips!
is there any substitute for eggs…iam a vegetarian…want to try for my kids
Can these be baked and if yes for what time and how many degrees?
Yes, these can be baked at 200 °C for about 15-20 min.
Hello guys I really like this site and these delecious recipes really really appreciated work.. but you ladies and gentlemen should think a little bit about your health, eating alot and trying every recipe isn’t good for you. Why not trying this new and trending method that had made benifits for alot of people recently.
Eat a delecious food and get fat burn in the same time
Take a look if you like and thank me ????
Came across your recipe as I was trying to find an easy appetizer for women’s potluck. Liked the pinwheel recipes. Somehow it didn’t seem like the typical recipe but your recipe seemed appealing. Anyway got hooked on going through various other recipes and liked your recipes that were appealing and had style. I became excited to start baking again and the videos were so helpful. Thank you
