A perfect fall dish, these apple and caramelized onion potato pancakes are easy to make with only a handful of ingredients. The hearty pancake batter is made from drained mashed potatoes, whole milk yogurt, an egg beaten slightly before adding it to the mixture, grated white cheddar cheese (plus more as needed), chopped fresh parsley leaves or sage and salt and pepper all worked together by a spoonful at a time until just combined.
The thick but sturdy consistency means they stay in shape on your skillet without any flipping required-perfect if you’re not confident about cooking them evenly like my friend who ended up with two small burnt ones when she tried her hand at making blueberry pancakes last week.
Ingredients: Potatoes (I used Yukon Gold), eggs, almond milk, gluten free flour blend of choice (this one has brown rice flour so it’s also vegan!), apple cider vinegar, olive oil, maple syrup or honey butter – optional topping)
Salt & pepper – to taste Optional: Caramelized onions Instructions: First peel potatoes and cut into small pieces while they’re still whole. Boil them until soft enough to smash down easily but not mushy. While waiting for the potatoes boil pour the eggs and almond milk into a bowl. Next, add the flour to the egg mixture and stir until it is well combined. While waiting for this to cook too mix together apple cider vinegar, olive oil, salt & pepper in another bowl. When potatoes are finished boiling mash them with a potato masher or fork so they’re still lumpy but almost smooth (don’t worry about being super perfect). Add the mashed potatoes to the mixed eggs/milk mixture while stirring constantly and then lastly pour in the liquid ingredients from step two of these instructions. Heat up your pan on medium heat with some vegetable oil sprayed onto it before pouring batter onto skillet – if you want extra flavor sprinkle caramelized onions over top!
-If making ahead of time, place in refrigerator and reheat either on stovetop or microwave for about a minute.
-Serve with sour cream, ketchup or apple butter.
