"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
This recipe for Potato Pancakes, by Della Winter Rone, is from Winter Family Recipes,
one of the cookbooks created at FamilyCookbookProject.com. We help
families or individuals create heirloom cookbook treasures.
4 or 5 small potatoes 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1 egg 1/4 teaspoon baking powder 1/3 cup milk
Shred potatoes in a medium bowl. Add egg, flour, baking powder and milk mixing well. Fry in skillet with only enough oil to coat the bottom. Put large spoonful scoops carefully into hot skillet. Reduce heat, if necessary to prevent burning and brown well on both sides until golden. Serve plain or with syrup or honey, if desired.
I make these pancakes to use up left-over mashed potatoes. Itís quick and a good accompaniment for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
