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.
  3. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

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.

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.

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!
