  • Potatoes - 3 to 4 (large, peeled)
  • Whole milk - 3/4 cup
  • Fine salt - 1.25 tsp
  • Cheesy garlic spread - 1/2 cup
  • Egg - 1
  • All-purpose flour - 1/2 cup
  • Freshly ground black pepper - 1/4 tsp
  • Butter - 1 to 2 tbsp

How to Make Potato Pancake

  • Heat the oven to 200 degrees F.
  • Chop half of the potatoes into large dices and boil for about 8 minutes.
  • Grate the remaining potatoes on the large holes of a box grater.
  • Toss with 1/4 tsps of the salt and place in a fine mesh strainer set over a medium bowl; set aside.
  • When the boiled potatoes are ready, drain them, return them to the pot, add 1/4 cup of the milk, and mash until the potatoes are smooth.
  • With a spatula, press the grated potatoes against the sides and bottom of the strainer to remove any liquid.
  • Add the grated potatoes to the mashed potatoes (no need to stir though).
  • Place the egg, remaining 1/2 cup milk, flour, pepper, Cheesy garlic spread and salt in a large bowl and whisk until smooth.
  • Add the potatoes and stir until evenly incorporated.
  • Heat a large non-stick frying pan or griddle over medium heat. Test to see if the pan is hot enough by sprinkling a couple of drops of cold water in it: If the water bounces and sputters, the pan is ready to use; if it evaporates instantly, the pan is too hot.
  • Once the pan is ready, add enough butter to lightly coat the bottom when melted.
  • Drop 3 dollops (about 1/4 cup each) of the batter into the pan and spread each to about 1/4 inches thick.
  • Cook until the pancake bottoms are golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Flip and cook the other side until golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes more.
  • Place on a baking sheet and set in the oven to keep warm.
  • Repeat with the remaining butter and batter.
  • Serve warm.
