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.

Delicious savory latkes-style pancakes. 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
  • ¼ onion, sautéed
Suggested Toppings:
  • GF cheddar cheese, grated
  • GF sour cream
  1. Combine together first five ingredients in a blender.
  2. Place shredded potatoes, bacon bits, and sautéed onion in a large bowl and mix together with the egg mixture.
  3. In a medium-hot greased skillet, use about ¼ 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).
  4. If desired, sprinkle some cheddar cheese onto each pancake, and keep warm in the oven until ready to serve.
  5. 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.
