Potato Pancakes

Growing up one of my favorite memories is my dad cooking up Potato Pancakes on a weekend morning.  You might say it was his specialty.

I, unfortunately, never got the opportunity to get his recipe or learn his secrets.  I have to say though, I have come to make a pretty darn good potato pancake myself.

When I got my Wondermill in the mail, I was so excited to try it out to make some whole wheat flour.  I decided to do my first batch with Hard Red Wheat Berries. It is hard to describe how good this fresh flour looks, and the color is fabulous!

So, I set off to the kitchen.  Whipped up some potato pancakes for breakfast with my fresh wheat flour and, “Oh my!”  Yes, they were that good.

Yes, I will share the recipe.  Here you go!

Potato Pancakes
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 2
A good hearty breakfast!
  • 1 Cup Shredded Potatoes
  • ¼ Cup Egg Beaters
  • ¼ tsp Ground Pepper
  • ¼ tsp Coarse Sea Salt
  • Dash of Tobasco Sauce
  • ¾ Cup Fresh Milled Wheat Flour
  1. Mix together all ingredients in a bowl
  2. *add more flour if needed (should just bind together)
  3. Place large spoonful into a frying pan over medium heat with a 1 TBSP Oil.
  4. Press flat with spatula
  5. Fry about 3-5 minutes each side until cooked through and crispy
  6. Serve Hot

I think that these are fabulous as is, but we always smothered them with sour cream as kids.  For an extra kick, try adding a little Ranch Dressing mix to your sour cream!


About busyvegetarianmom

My name is Tracy and I am a new-ish Busy Vegetarian Mom. After my husband at a very young age had 3 stents placed due to peripheral arterial sclerosis, we became proactive in our health and took a great course (CHIP) on how to reduce your cholesterol and improve your overall health. The class was geared toward eating a Vegan diet. I started my blog as a way to record answers to my questions and my favorite recipes along our journey to becoming healthy vegetarians. Most of my recipes are Vegan, all are Vegetarian. It quickly turned into a passion and I can't imagine my life without blogging and sharing the things I learn with others. I like to think that maybe I am making a difference and helping others on the path to health as well. Not only have we expanded our palate and enjoy so many wonderful meals we never would have tried, we have met so many wonderful people along the way and learned new things about our area in our search for healthy "eating out" options. It truly has been a life changing experience. I started a secondary blog as a result to connect with other food bloggers. It is one of those "Foodie Friends" who connected me with this opportunity to try the "WonderMill Electric Grain Mill" and I am so excited!

Grain Mill Wagon Challenge Experience: I'd like to thank Wondermill for the opportunity to participate in the Grain Mill Wagon Challenge. I had never thought of milling my own flour before this. I was very eager to try it and I am so glad I did. Not only do I get fresh flour milled instantly and easily to the consistency I need, it saves me money as well. I am able to buy organic grains in bulk and mill as needed. All of my recipes that I used my freshly milled flour in tasted so wonderful. I highly recommend the Electric Grain Mill for anyone who bakes. Thank you!
