[QUOTE=PhotosGuy;18087315]Non naming names, but someone mentioned making potato pancakes with mashed potato mix. Blekhh! How could anyone possibly equate them with grated potatoes with the little crispy bits sticking out at the edges? And chunks of onion inside?
So I shot this:
There, I feel better now! ; D[/QUOTE
To my eye and from my upbringing as well as the location of my upbringing these appear
to be hash browns. However, a simplified search shows that many potato pancakes (German, Jewish etc) do look like what you have shown. I pretty much love the potato in any form presented. I look forward to going to Peru some day to try all they have to offer
The only pancake style I ever made was back in 2012 - left over mashed potatoes, onion, egg, flour, salt, pepper a bit of oil then fried lightly and served with your choice of sour cream or apple sauce.
I had to dig for the photo - it was from July 25, 2012. Used a 7D with 100mm f/2.8 macro. I recall they were pretty tasty ... and I do have some leftover mashed in the fridge .... might just do it again.
