"Potato pancakes" have always sounded good to me, but execution has eluded me over the years. My recent increased interest in cooking has taught me a lot, and I decided to try them again today. All I can say is "YUM!"

Even my 14-yr-old, who doesn't much like onions, loved these. I know because he asked for seconds and cleaned his plate!

Weird kid, though; he put peanut butter on them. LOL

How to Make Savory Potato Pancakes
