I'm in Hickory - 40 or so minutes is about right. I had just the right wine picked out to go with potato pancakes and bacon juice too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You still working kitchenelf? I've got a BIG glass of wine ready and I'm sitting here looking to gab.

OK, and I was thinking about the potato pancake thing. If you are putting in cheese etc then the egg is certainly a must. But a dusting of flour helps to bind things too. You just have to judge how wet your "batter" is.

Okay, pancake one was runny and burned on side two. The potatoes are definitely runnier than ever before after adding the eggs. I think I'll boil some more potatoes.

Just toss in a bit of flour. I sometimes sprinkle in some baking powder too.

Not more potatoes???? I'm just so worried about adding flour. My flour smells funny.

Meh! You won't smell it in the pancakes. Just sprinkle about 1/4 cup in there. And if it is really bad then set a container of baking soda on top of the flour. It will suck up all the bad smell.

Okay ~ more potatoes AND the reluctant addition of flour seems to have worked. I think the real issue with this batch was over mashing. They taste great but definitely different this time.

See...the potatoes get runny when you cook them, unless you add...a bit of flour.

I will have to copy this thread so I'll remember all this. There is a place here that serves them - they are chunky and garlicky and yummy!!!!

Glad they turned out Callisto!

They never did before. I just mashed the potatoes too much this time. I just don't see how they can get runny when you cook them since they're already cooked once. I could see if they were fresh, not cooked, but it's odd to me adding flour to already cooked potatoes.

I'm still perplexed but I think my skillet could be the issue too. I'm going to use my griddle next time and less butter. Oh, if only I had a cast iron skillet. That would solve all my problems
