Potato Pancakes
Using Leftovers
— 30 Comments

  1. My Mom was Slavic,1st generation born here, I miss a lot of her recipes and this is one of them ! She always had a drippings jar by the stove and these got fried in leftover bacon grease. I’ve been craving these.

    • For several years now I have also been saving bacon grease that I put thru a filter to remove particles. I then put that into a sealed container in my fridge. I use that to flavor when fry any of potato dish such as hash browns and potato pancakes. Back in November my mom was in the hospital and craving potato pancakes. Even though I was from out of town I went to my brother’s and cooked her up some and brought it to her. This was the final time that I was able to see my mom enjoy my cooking. She passed away on Christmas Eve (2017).

  2. My Mom made the best mashed potatoes and loved when she made too many as the next day she would do the pancakes above. I believe she mixed an egg into the potatoes, coat with flour and then brown on both sides.

  3. I usually make too much potatoes during Easter and Christmas cooking when I make pagach and pierogies. The pierogi potatoes have the onions and cheddar cheese and the pagach is just the cheese so I make what I need initially for both. Neither have milk and are only hand-mashed – not creaming whipped. Then I almost ALWAYS make too much. Now combine that with the leftovers from Christmas Day dinner…. Damn I LOVE potato pancakes from leftover potatoes! LOL

  4. although I still have the old box grater I now grate my potatoes with a salad shooter.(saves knuckles) and when it comes to making cucumber onion n sour cream you can’t beat the saladshooter for the thinnest of cucumber n onion slices, very necessary for this dish!
