"My husband's family is Irish, and his mother makes potato pancakes quite often," writes Betsy McDaniels of Colfax, Illinois. "I like to add other vegetables to give them a more colorful look and heartier texture. Crispy on the outside and soft inside, these receive rave reviews, especially when I serve them to my in-laws!"
