Potato Pancakes for Pilgrims

Polish potato pancakes My clan’s tradition Peel, grate, soften in water Add eggs, onions, salt A smidge of flour Fry in oil Wow!
*I am truly thankful for everything my grandparents did for me as a child. Learning to cook ethnic foods is just one of many blessings they bestowed upon me. *Entry for Gwen and Tony's Thanksgiving Dinner Epulaeryu contest

    Carolyn, I'm honored to share a fourth place position with you in this fun contest. I'd eat a potato pancake right now if I had it! RAY

    Hi Carolyn~I kept scratchin' my head wondering who came up with this clever entry...and it was YOU! This dish sounds very delicious and the fact that it's a tradition and takes a lot of effort to peel those taters, W_O_W! Just sounded too good! Thanks for always putting in a great entry for my contests and for your thotful mentoring since I joined this site earlier this year. So many times I just wanted to quit writing bc it didn't come naturally. You are a PS treasure!! Luv, Gwendolen

    Sounds very tasty indeed, Carolyn - what would you serve with the pancakes or is it a dish in its own right? Many congrats on all your wins too - who says that? I still can't remember...

    Yum!!! I make these same kind of "pancakes" out of zuchinni too! Yummy!! These sound heavenly too, Carolyn! Do you ever make something similar out of leftover mashed potatoes?...that works too! Great poem!! Best of luck!!

    Reads like a winner.. I do something similar using leftover mashed potatoes..Good luck in the contest..I will have to try this one sometimes..I am sure that people who had access to very little flour but had potatoes came up with this idea..Glad that you got chuckle about my last work..Sara
