Next time I make mashed potatoes, IF there are any left, I am going to make these. This recipe sounds a lot like my mother's... she never had a recipe so I never know what, exactly, she added to the potatoes. But they sure were GOOD!!!

Ginger, Thanks for the post. I don't like chunky potatoes pancakes, like the grated versions, so this was a great find for me! I will serve with sour cream:)

I am so glad that you all have taken an interest in this recipe, I wasn't sure that anyone would like this one. I am tickled to see there are other potato lovers out there. Nancy, I sometimes have a little leftover dip that is mayo, sour cream and horseradish that is really good with these potato cakes!

I love this recipe. This is exactly how I do it. I think the trick is dredging the cakes in flour....yummy My family love these.... :)
