Slightly Adapted Mamo's Potato Pancakes Recipe

Potato Pancakes Recipe
Ellen Easton shares with us her Southern-Style Potato Pancakes recipe which she also features as a non-kosher recipe side dish to enjoy in her Passover Dinner Menu. Potato pancakes are a savory side dish that are quite delicious topped with a dollop of sour cream and sprinkled with chives. They pair especially well with Ellen’s Baked Applesauce.

Potato Pancakes Recipe:

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: Serves 6


4 large baking potatoes, peeled
1 sweet onion, skin removed
1 large egg, beaten
1 teaspoon Reva Paul’s Seasoning Mix (see below recipe)
2 to 4 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
1/4 cup parsley, finely diced
1/4 cup chives, finely diced (optional)*
2 cups of olive oil**

Reva Paul's Seasoning Mix:
2-1⁄2 tablespoons onion powder
2-1⁄2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix together. Store in a container, preferably with a dual shaker with an easy to spoon out top. Store in a cool, dry place until ready to use.

In a large bowl lined with a paper towel or a large strainer finely grate the potatoes and onions, draining off the excess liquid. Tip: You can place the grated potatoes and onion in a tea towel and twist the top of the towel together tightly until you can not wring out any further to squeeze out any excess water.

Remove the grated potatoes and onions from the paper towel or strainer and place into a mixing bowl. Add in the egg, seasoning, 2 tablespoons of flour, parsley, and chives. Mix together into a thick paste. Note: Add in additional flour if the mixture seems too wet.

Coat your hands in oil to avoid the potato mixture from sticking to your fingers. On wax paper, use 1/4 cup of the mixture to form 1/2-inch thick pancakes or to the size of your choice.
