Perfect Potato Pancakes

I like to serve these potato pancakes with barbecued sausage. They're also nice with baked ham and applesauce or with breakfast sausages. And, with these and other types of meals, they're a good alternative to french fries. My children are married, and I'm a widow. So I don't do as much cooking as I once did. Guests always ask for the recipe when I serve this dish, though. And when my son and his family visited me from Winnipeg not long ago, one of the first things he asked for were Perfect Potato Pancakes!
