No Mess Potato Pancakes



  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. A potato masher works well for this job.
  2. While mixing, heat a frying pan on the stove top with a small amount of oil or butter. If you have a cast iron skillet use it, it is awesome for frying food.
  3. Here is where the no mess comes in, the next step should be shape into patties and put in hot pan, but this is so messy! I was washing my hands after each batch. So I tried a mini ice cream scoop. It worked perfectly.
  4. Scoop up the mix.
  5. Drop into hot pan.
  6. Then take the spatula and flatten the potato ball. This is a little tricky, try quick taps so it doesn’t stick to the pancake.
  7. Cook for about 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  8. Serve as a side with dinner or with syrup for a hot breakfast.
