These are a staple at church picnics and block parties in the Coal Region. Like potato salad recipes, every body’s is a little different than every body else’s.

aka Potato Pancakes
  1. Peel and grate potatoes. Squeeze dry.
  2. Mix potatoes (except salt) and all other ingredients together.
  3. Add oil to large frying pan, about 1/2 inch deep in pan. On medium high heat, scoop a couple tablespoons of the pancake mixture into pan and flatten with the back of a spoon. (Amount depends on the size of the pancakes you want) Fry until brown on one side, flip, brown on the other. Make sure potatoes are cooked through.
  4. Drain on paper towels. Salt now to taste. Hold warm in 200F oven if desired.
  5. Some people put vinegar on before eating, others smear on some grape or strawberry jelly, some eat with sour cream and/or apple sauce.
Recipe Notes


Feel free to adjust the seasoning or additions to your own taste. I grate a rib of celery into my potato mix, and I squeeze the excess liquid from the shredded potatoes before mixing. Salting after they are removed from the oil rather than adding salt to the batter results in less unwanted liquid forming in the mix as it sits awaiting frying.
