Yep, I think last night Callisto (and everyone) got this on the right track. What everyone said today was spot on - it was just figured out last night. I know it's not always possible to read posts but in the long run sometimes it saves time

We will await the perfect results now

DQ - I think it sounded like you didn't realize she was using mashed because all you mentioned was shredded - that's where the confusion came in. Her potato pancakes would be good with sour cream but, IMHO, not applesauce - save that for the latkes for sure!

OK Callisto - I just thought of something. Freeze some sour cream (even some butter mixed in too) with chives in a flattish ball form. Right when you go to fry these stick one of these in the middle of the potato mixture - seriously, this thread is killing me!

Good idea on the size but seriously, aren't you from Texas? I've never heard of a Texan making something smaller I like a big fat potato pancake (when using mashed, that is) - ok, I'll just add these silver dollar ones to the throwdown!

Smile Potato pancakes and applesauce

My dear friends where is it written that applesauce doesn't go with potato pancakes of most any kind? Of course it may be written, but I don't believe all that I read. Love applesauce with!

My theory in that statement is simply what goes with MASHED potatoes. We're not talking latkes here...but mashed. Maybe it's just my tastebuds - but I stand by them and they say leave the applesauce off the mashed potato pancakes Sour cream, however, a different thing...

Sourcream and chives are great with this. Because of the cheddar cheese I don't think applesauce would be good with these. However, if you are an apple pie and cheese person, you may enjoy it. These have green onions and cheddar so sour cream and chives would be a great combo.

BTW ~ I'm hungry. Is it 5:00 yet?

Oh ~ chive and onion cream cheese dolloped in the middle before cooking side two. Doesn't that sound like a treat.

I've only had grits once and they were disgusting. I'm told I should try again because they really are good, but you know how it goes when something is your first time trying it, it tends to scar your pallet.

Maybe after you get your potato pancakes recipe down pat you can do just that!

I've made potato cakes with diced, sauted, onion added for something different with roast beef!

Enjoy!

Well, here's my 2 cents. My Mama used to make these all the time and here is how she made them:

2 cups mashed potatoes (I've never tried instant potatoes so I have no idea if those will work)
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons dried chives
1/4 cup flour



Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Using a large spoon, drop by spoonful on a well greased non-stick pan. Cook over medium heat until golden brown, flip and cook other side until golden brown.
**For added flavor, you can add some bacon bits and shredded cheese to the batter before cooking.
