My hubby travels a lot for business and eats at a lot of places,and when he tells me had a half way descent meal somewhere I try and make that exact dish tens times better so he remembers whose cooking is better(hehehe) Got to keep him coming back to my kitchen! And Happy AT That! :P
So I threw together theses amazing potato pancakes this morning, and they were a HUGE hit! Yet for me, He had plain Jane potato pancakes at IHOP while in Oklahoma, and so I took it up a few notches!!!! And it was well worth it:) I hope these find there way your breakfast table soon or even dinner! Enjoy!
