Potato Pancakes YUM

I decided to make the potato pancakes that someone posted. It is the one with the batter. I decided to not add the salt. I am not a salt person. I have never been placed on salt restriction. I just am not one to reach for the salt shaker. When I went into the fridge for the milk and butter, I saw the open half package of shredded Mozzarella cheese. So to use it up before it went moldy, I toss that into the batter. It is a good thing I didn't put the salt in. The cheese had enough salt to adjust the recipe. I used my egg rings. It doesn't have the high sides a muffin ring has. But it was just high enough to make sure it was cooked through.

I also had a package of minute steaks in the fridge. They were supposed to go into the freezer. They never made it. So I tossed the small one in the pan with the pancakes.

The pancakes were cooked perfectly. And the cheese just added to the whole experience. No complaint about the steak either. That is the biggest meal I have cooked for myself in months. It usually is just something I can hold in my hand. I must do this more often. I recommend the the pancakes. One bowl, one spoon to mix it all together.

Oh yes. I still have a lot of batter left. You can be sure there will be more made before the night has ended. But I have only till 12 midnight. I have to fast for blood work in the morning. But I just may have a couple of more for breakfast when I get home.

Thanks for that tip. How do you reheat them up? I think I will freeze them.

If they are cooked ,just reheat them in the oven, or microwave them. If uncooked ,shape them and freeze them, then cook in hot oil. No need to defrost. Just cook them through. I think they are best cooked in Crisco about 1/4 inch deep.

Thank you. I think I will reheat them in my toaster oven.

With Chanukah around the corner the kids school put out on the pre-Chanuka branch, amongst other things I made traditional Latkas, a.k.a. potato pancakes. I only used 30 pounds of potatoes , oh my were they good. To be completely honest I have to admit, I think at least 5-7 pounds left.

My husband is looking forward to his latkes and sufganiyot. I usually use shredded potato and onion but heard interesting things about a smooth puree like patty. Thoughts?

I also have made pp's with leftover mashed potatoes. Always a favorite with my kids. Last night my middle son (The Pirate) was supposed to come for supper if he had time. I told him today what he missed out on. I didn't tell him I had frozen some. I will let that be surprise.
