First, in case you are curious about the vegetable from the yesterday post, here it is:
|Ta-da! Mister Cabbage...
Cabbage core is often discarded, but it is tender and full of nutrients part of this vegetable.
I know you wander what on Earth I am going to do with twelve heads of cabbage?! Sauerkraut... :)
***Now, this recipe of potato pancakes is from my mom's recipe book. Grandma had done it the same way, and, probably, so did the great grandma too.
This digital days my blog became a notebook for me to keep the recipes. The benefit of this recipe book: everyone can cook from it.
- 2 lb potato
- 2 large eggs, or 3 medium
- 2 Tbsp with top flour
- 2 medium onions, or one large
- 1 tsp baking soda, mixed in a teaspoon lemon juice
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
- Oil for cooking
Prepare all ingredients: peel and wash potatoes, onion, garlic. Use either cheese grater or food processor to shred potatoes, onion and garlic.
Combine in the mixing ball all the wet and dry ingredients, and mix well.
Set aside for about 10-15 minutes.
|Shredded potatoes, onion, and garlic
Preheat oil of your choice in a cast iron skillet (or any other skillet).
When oil is hot, spoon the mixture into the skillet to form a small pancakes.
Cook on both sides on a medium-high setting until golden brown.
First pancake I usually make to taste to see if I need to adjust the salt and other seasonings.

Serve with vegetables, sour cream, any dressing or sauce of your choice.
We love it with Squash Caviar or sour cream.
Add some sauerkraut on a side, mmm...
My son said he had it with ketchup...
