Potato Pancakes ~Applesauce and ...a mystery


 Explore the joy of growing food flowers & friendships
    I spent this afternoon working up a new recipe for my friends Jan and Kylee, two dynamic ladies who in addition to their careers and family lives have also found time to create a blog called the The Soil Sisters . They have produced a well-designed, informative and interesting blog related to gardening and a whole lot more. One does not have to be a gardener to appreciate all they have to offer. I trust that even the black thumbed among you may, after visiting their site find yourselves tempted to give gardening another try. It is always such an honor to contribute to their site and I look forward to sending them my new recipe.

     As I prepared the dish for our dinner this evening I needed a simple delicious side dish to serve on the side. I decided potato pancakes would be the perfect compliment to the meal. If you are curious as to what I served with the potato pancakes stay tuned to this blog and The Soil Sisters. I will link to it as soon as it is published.
Grating the potato
1 Russet potato 
(Peeled and grated)
(Blotted with a paper towel)
½ yellow onion (diced)
1 egg
1 tbs flour
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
1 tbs olive oil
1 tbs butter
         ~
Place egg and flour into a bowl
Add the diced onion
Add the potato
Add the S&P
Mix
(Sometimes I add grated cheese ~ today I did not)
         ~
Make patties
Pan fry in a combination of butter and olive oil
When the first side is golden brown flip
And cook on the other side till it is golden brown 
I served the pancakes with applesauce 
(of course)

Total Under $ 2.00 
It's a classic Combination

You are somethin', Ms. Debra! Thanks so much for all your support for The Soil Sisters. You're the best! <3

I want to try these potato pancakes. I love them and mostly my mom's way of doing them with leftover mashed potatoes. These sound and look good too.
