SO HOW'D IT GO?

tastes delicious when you just start being creative like keda said, try somthing new every time. its a great way to get rid of leftovers.also try different dips, depending on the ingredients they are always fun to try, such a bbq sauce, ketchup, TAPATIO or other picante hot sauce >:D

tip: after shredding the potatoes get rid of the juices by  compressing the potatoes into the bottom of the container. works best with clean hands and draining over the sink or if your a big hippie, into a container for potato juice. also i add hot sauce directly into the mixture

I used whole wheat flour because it was all I had. Next time I'll add some garlic powder. It came out much better than expected. Crispy and crunchy outside, tender inside. So simple and sa  :)>>>tisfying

this is a silly question but...how do you shred potatoes?
do you do it with a cheese grater? make really thin matchsticks...???

I always use a cheese grater, tho on occasion I've used a all in one kitchen robot with shredding attachment.

omg, i've made these since i was seven! ten years of practice, you know..  8) so, here are some tips:

TIP: add salt right after shredding potatoes. this brings out the excess water and makes them stick together a lot better.
TIP: frying makes them oily and unhealthy. to fix that you just fry them as you usually would and then place in 1 not overlaping layer on a cooking sheet with parchment and bake them for 7 minutes (or microwave on high for 1 minute). it brings out most of the oil and finishes them if they weren't cooked compleately.
TIP: add garlic. it will kill the raw potatoe flavour they sometimes have.

what i did was chopped a tomatoe, 1/4 bell pepper and microwaved on high for 3 minutes, then added to the mixture along with some oregano and pepper. grated carrot or even a cabbage complements them as well. go crazy with seasoning (curry, chili, dry herbs or your choice etc.) and make different pancakes every time!

I made this exactly as written except that I used AP Flour instead of of oat flour because I didn't have any.  I also fried it in olive oil instead of Pam.  This was really yummy, sooo good.  I didn't need to add any egg replacer or anything.
