This was a recipe from a potato pancake mix. I don't remember who used the Big Tate name & I haven't been able to find the mix anymore. You can use any potato pancake mix though. I only know that it was Big Tate because the mix was a bigger size. As I don't know how many ounces an envelope contained. If you make this & it doesn't come out right with 1 envelope of mix, try 2 next time as this really was good.
