Potato Pancakes Recipe Recipe

Updated: April 9, 2014
Potato pancakes are very popular in Slavic community, in terms of breakfast. It's a combination of a very few simple ingredients such as potatoes, onion, eggs, seasoning and, on some occasions, even flour. Crunchy edges of the potato pancakes were my favorite, during childhood. I often asked mom to fry my piece for a longer time to make it extra crispy.
