If you're looking for potato pancakes, this is not the recipe. Followed recipe as written. These are pretty flavorless. They may work as a side as in the image, but as potato pancakes, .... not this recipe.

Very good recipe. Using frozen hash browns makes it so easy and adding onion makes it so good.

I just tried this recipe, my husband liked these potato pancakes. I will make them at work (an elderly facility). I will do another review after I have made these for our residents. I'm so excited!

These were simple to make and tasted great. The egg and butter gave them great flavor. We ate them with soup beans and will definitely make them again.
