I have been making potato pancakes for YEARS and I always put my shredded potatos in a clean dishcloth and give them a good wringing before I add the eggs and such...

My red potatoes gave off a lot of liquid after shredding & I can't imagine adding 3 eggs to this. I only used one egg & still had to add at least twice the amount of flour called for. I should've used my common sense & squeezed the moisture out of the potatoes instead of trying to compensate by adding extra flour to a terribly soupy mixture. They didn't turn out bad but I could've saved myself some time & energy if I would've just trusted my own cooking skills.

This was good, but there was nothing overly special about it. Point to remember~ some spuds have more moisture than others. If you don't use the reds in the recipe, you may need to adjust the amount of flour.

This recipe is definitely a keeper! Best potato pancakes I've ever made.

This is a great recipe! I LOVE the fact that I didn't have to peel or precook the potatoes. The only change I made was using green onions because that's all I had on had. I'm keeping this one for sure!

I made this recipe exactly and I found the lime juice too strong. I would eliminate this in future as there was already enough liquid from the other ingredients.

Best potato pancakes I've ever made! Even my super-picky 5-year-old couldn't get enough.
