Using instant potato flakes and an instant pancake mix for my starter, I'm always ready for my B-and-B guests. Works great if you're cooking for 2 or 20. Great by themselves -- or top with bacon, poached egg, and cheese (we like applesauce on the side, also.) Great finger food, just fold it over a slice of cheese or bacon.

Directions

  1. Stir together the potato flakes, pancake mix, onion, Cheddar cheese, milk, egg, olive oil, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper in a bowl until well combined.
  2. Grease a griddle or large skillet, and place over medium heat. Drop pancakes, 1/4 cup at a time, onto the hot griddle, and cook until the edges look dry and 1 bubble appears in the center, about 3 minutes. Flip the pancakes, and cook until browned on the other side, about 3 more minutes.

We LOVE these pancakes! There was definitely a learning curve to cooking them as the thick texture of the batter makes them cook faster on the outside than the inside. Really simple, delicious potato pancakes.

This was quick and easy, but more importantly it was really good. I used buckwheat pancake mix and 1 1/2 tsp of dried onions since that is what I had. I will definitely make these again. Thanks!

I love potato pancakes but don't always have time for the traditional recipe. This one is very easy and has a good taste. I minced rather than chop the onion. If you need a quick side dish I would recommend these. Try adding some fresh herbs. Thanks for sharing.
