Potato Latkes (pancakes)

Sherry Neander


Mom used to make these often. They are great with apple sauce and sour cream. Good for an easy breakfast or a side dish for a roast. For those who aren't restricted in diet or by religious laws you can add a bit of bacon grease to the oil, or bacon to mix.
