I really want to make potato pancakes at home, the kind that are fried and enjoyed with sour cream and applesauce. Yum. I’ve been looking at recipes online, and they vary widely. Some call for onion, some don’t. Some say grate the potatoes, some say puree. Some say put in flour, some pancake mix, some no extra starch.
What is your recipe? I know I’m going to grate the potatoes, not puree, since the the ones that I’ve liked in the past seemed to have grated potatoes in them. How do you stand on the onion question? The flour/pancake mix/whatever? What is the best kind of potato to use for it, russets or red ones or what?
