About 7 or 8 years ago, I compiled a cookbook of my own and gave it to my family and friends for Christmas that year. It's got 469 pages of great recipes. This is one of them. This recipe was given to me by my mom. (She just passed away in May, 2015 at the age of 94.) My mom used to make these potato pancakes all the time when I was a little girl and I just loved them. Sometimes we had them with breakfast, other times, she made these potato pancakes with salmon cakes. In later years, she added about a half teaspoon of Dijon mustard to the "batter". It gave it such a good flavor.
