Potato Pancakes (Latkas)

I’ve never met a potato I didn’t like. Baked, broiled, mashed, stuffed, fried, you name, I love it.

If you think potatoes in a pancake sounds gross, you’re right! But these aren’t like a traditional batter-like fluffy pancake, they are more like a hashbrown than a pancake.  For me, the cheese and sour cream toppings are what really makes these great.

  • 2 Tbsp GF flour mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp GF sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp butter or margarine
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 potatoes peeled & grated
  • 3 slices GF bacon cooked & crumbled
  • 1/4 onion sautéed

Suggested Toppings:

  • GF cheddar cheese grated
  • GF sour cream


  • Combine together first five ingredients in a blender.
  • Place shredded potatoes, bacon bits, and sautéed onion in a large bowl and mix together with the egg mixture.
  • In a medium-hot greased skillet, use about 1/4 cup to create each pancake. Cover with lid and cook until bottom is golden, then flip. Cook until potato is tender, about 5-8 minutes (add more oil as needed for frying).
  • If desired, sprinkle some cheddar cheese onto each pancake, and keep warm in the oven until ready to serve.
  • Top with a dollop of sour cream to serve.


Before I add the shredded potatoes to the egg mixture, I first like to soak them in cold water for about 20 minutes (changing the water twice during that time). This removes a lot of the starch, making a less gummy potato pancake.
