When I need to snuggle with food, one of the many that come to mind is potato pancakes.


2 Large Baking Potatoes
1 Medium Onion Diced
1 Large Egg
3-4 Tbsp. Flour
Salt and Pepper

Peel and grate potatoes. In a food processor, puree potatoes with the onion. Add the egg, flour, salt and pepper and pulse to mix. If mixture is a little loose, add a little more flour at a time.

Heat a fry pan with 1/4 inch of oil on medium/high heat. When hot, ladle potato mixture in pan (pancake style). Fry to a golden brown on both sides and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with a little salt while pancakes are still hot.

Serve with tons of sour cream, or as my father used to love, applesauce.

It is what it is...........

Oh Truman!

Bring on the comfort food!

Thanks for this. My dad used to make these. I'm gonna have him make them when he comes out for the Holidays.

Wouldn't it be fun to open a little restaurant that serves nothing but comfort food like grandma used to make? Some things on the menu would be:

Strawberry Pie
mashed potatoes and gravy - of course!
peach cobbler
fried chicken
pot roast
tuna casserole
breaded pork tenderloin
mock turtle soup
corned beef and cabbage
pulled pork sandwiches

and of course potato pancakes!

Oh Yea - Comfort Food's the best!

Grilled cheese sandwich with a cup of soup (any soup - it's just an excuse to eat the sandwich)
Black-eye peas and cornbread
Gumbo (any kind)

For breakfast
Huge, steaming biscuits
Waffles with lots of warm syrup
Grits with lots of butter (or my southwest version - lots of green chile)

Comfort food warm the body and the soul,

When my kids were little and would get sick :( , they could always count on a "boo-boo belly" supper. They would snuggle in bed under the covers or nestle on the couch waiting for it's delivery :P . To this day, a stranger could ask them what a "boo-boo belly" supper is and they'll tell you grilled cheese and chicken noodle soup.

Wouldn't it be great if all we needed for a remedy was a "boo-boo belly" supper to make it all better? :D

It is what it is...........

######!!! I love potato pancakes....but I gotta tell you.....these are even BETTER!! I don't know if you guys have tried this but believe me you should. They are Cottage Cheese pancakes and basically you just subsitute the cottage cheese for the potato. You cut out the carbs and you add protein. I suggest that you add a little cheddar cheese and sour cream to the top. Pure heaven is all I have to say. Oh and the freeze fantasticlly well for an easy snack that you pop into the microwave. YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMY!!!

Here's the recipe

These taste remarkably like old fashioned potato pancakes... they are delicious served with a little reduced fat sour cream and no sugar applesauce, just like the original.

1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 tablespoon butter
1 egg
1/2 cup cottage cheese
2 tablespoons flour

Saute the onion in the butter until golden and set aside. In a small bowl, beat egg slightly, blend in cottage cheese, flour, salt and pepper, and onion butter mixture. Heat nonstick skillet over medium high heat, spray with Pam, and spread four 1/4 cup scoops of batter into small pancakes. Cook until surface appears slightly firm and undersides are golden brown... flip and cook until lightly brown on other side.

Take care and stay warm,
