  1. I make my potato pancakes the same way … the only thing I add to the mix on occasion are some pepper flakes and finely grated Parmesan cheese. I don't normally put any thing on top of them, but will try the sour cream, which I do put on baked potatoes. Thanks for the video …. very well done.

  2. My mother made the German version for an occasional treat, you would hand grate the potatoes & onion, she would simply pour off excess liquid (not press out liquid) mix egg, flour, salt, pepper (less amount of flour). The batter will be looser like trad itional pancakes. When these were made, only applesauce or grape jelly was on the table. I was a one of 8 children, I had to have maple syrup, syrup came out for me, then one time we were out of syrup. I wasn’t going pass on this meal. So, I had one with grape jelly, loved it & the next one with apple sauce, loved it. Mom made this for dinner meal. Have tried this with the shredded version & never would finish or order it that way (fried hash browns). Master the grated version & you will pass a tradition down to ur children. Hide the syrup, put out grape jelly & applesauce & hoping chef will do a video on the grated version

  3. These aren’t potato pancakes. These are hash brown potato patties! A potato pancake is an already cooked potato mixed up with ingredients to make it a potato batter and then fried.
    Sorry Escoffier cooking, you’re wrong.

  4. What kind of oil do you use ? In your pan, to fry, that’s the way we ate them at home as a child ………Great with sour cream, and applesauce…….Looks Great Chief……My background German, they eat with apples…..baked ……Too……Wow, looks so Good, your finished plate……

  5. YOU NEED TO PAR BOIL THE SPUDS FOR ABOUT 5 MINS JUST UNTIL SOFT STICK A BAMBOO TOOTHPICK IN THEN GRATE EM STICK IN REFRIG. TO GET FIRM
    THENNNN FRY EM UP SEE THE DIFFERENCE….HASH BROWNS SAME…👍👍👍👍👍

  6. I wonder if draining the water makes this more Kidney friendly? Does the water contain potassium & phosphorus? Or should we soak the chopped potatoes before shredding, to ensure that the Kidney offending nutrients are leeched out of the potatoes?
    What about the healthy potato "resistant" starch? Why don't you put it back into the potatoes after you toss out the drained water? Resistant Starch is vital for out colon bacteria. It prevents Colon Cancer!

  7. LOL potato pancakes my ass.. that is just breakfast hash brown potatoes.. real potato pancakes from the old countries of europe are made with potatoes that are shredded very fine, not like his gross looking things.. and fried crisp in oil or bacon fat.. this guy is just making home fries with shredded potatoes
