Swiss Cheese Potato Pancakes Recipe

Years ago, when I was searching for just the right thing to perk up a meal, my neighbor suggested these pancakes. They did the trick! Golden brown, crisp and cheesy, they make a deliciously different dish anytime of day.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups shredded peeled potatoes (about 1 pound)
  • 1/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil, divided

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually add flour and mix well. Stir in the potatoes, Swiss cheese, onion, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper.
  • 2. Heat butter and 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls into butter and oil; press lightly to flatten. Fry in batches until golden brown on both sides, using remaining oil as needed. Drain on paper towels. Yield: 16 pancakes.
