I have said it before and I’ll say it again; I love potatoes in any way, shape or form. I also love them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Anytime, anyplace, any way.
Well, when I found this SUPER EASY potato pancake recipe I couldn’t wait to try it and make it my own. It starts with frozen hash browns (which I always have in my freezer) and just a few other staple ingredients that many of us have on hand each and every day.
These are great served with eggs and sausage for breakfast, as a midday snack with a bit of sour cream or along side some yummy applesauce and pork for dinner. The possibilities are endless!
Spice up any meal with these spud studs!
Easy Potato Pancakes
- 3 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1-1/2 teaspoons water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- nonstick cooking spray for griddle
Place the hash browns in a strainer; rinse with cold water until thawed. Drain thoroughly; transfer to a large bowl. Add the flour, eggs, butter, water and salt and mix well.
Heat griddle to medium high and spray with nonstick spray. Drop batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto griddle; fry until golden brown on both sides. Serve warm. Yield: 6 servings.
*other ingredients would be great added to the “batter” of these as well: chives, ham, cheese, garlic salt, sautéed onions just to name a few.
