Just tried this recipe for the first time. I have never found a potato pancake recipe that I liked 'til this one! It's excellent! My "picky eaters" ate all I made and asked for more. Thank you.

This recipe was very dry and gluey. Not even my husband would eat them and he likes everything.

I just made these tonight for dinner. I have never had potato pancakes before and this recipe was great! They came out so awsome, my family loved them. They were easy to make and taste great!

I gave this a 4 rating because they turned out dry and floury. I think with about 1 cup less flour, this recipe will be a 5 star for me! They had a good flavor sprinkled with parmesan cheese.

These potato pancakes are so good! Make sure to use the whole batter and not save any for later. My unused batter turned black after a few hours in the fridge.

This was just like heaven! It reminded me so much of my mother I could have cried. Thank you a lot from the bottom of my heart. I had an idea how to make them but was always afraid to. Thanks again!
