Potato is one of those vegetables that we all love. Whether it is a side dish, in a stew or in these pancakes, they always fall into the comfort food department.

What I love about this potato pancake recipe is, all you do is mix everything, then bake into crispy potato pancakes. No frying needed!

The potato pancakes make an excellent addition to breakfast. Just add eggs, maybe bacon or sausage, fruit and you are good to go.

But, don’t stop at breakfast, they make for a delicious anytime snack. I especially love them with homemade apple sauce or sour cream and chives. 

Because they are so easy to make, you can make them any time of the day. I especially love them with sauerkraut salad or pork tenderloin with bacon and stewed red cabbage with apples. Enjoy!
