Isn’t it amazing how a few simple ingredients can create such a flavourful family favourite -German Potato Pancakes? Many cultures have a potato pancake version and since there aren’t many ingredients there isn’t really much variation in them. The biggest variation is onion? or no onion? I went with the onion this time. Our family recipe doesn’t have onion but a girlfriend made a batch and sent us over some for a treat. We liked them so much we may have to go with the onion version from now on!
I use a mandolin to grate the potatoes. I find long thin strips make the best texture. You can use a box grater or a grater disc in your food processor. You want the potato to have some texture so be careful with a food processor that you don’t grate it too finely.
Topped with a bit of sour cream or apple sauce they can be a meal on their own.
