this is very good! Real German potato pie is "grated" as the recipe states, not sliced. The slicing produces something that looks like hash brown. Be sure not only to drain the liquid, but also to squeeze the water into the kitchen towel. Waste of time, yes, but well worth the effort.

This is a traditional potato pancake recipe, and it's a great comfort food. Serving with apple sauce & sour cream for a lightly dinner, or with grilled chicken about a hearty winter meal. You can utlize more flour if the mix seems too wet.
