Cast Iron Potato Pancakes

It was a listener suggestion, so I gave it a go this weekend! – Scotty

A few weeks ago we were talking about how I wanted to cook more with my grandmother’s cast iron skillet.  As usual, Clear Country had some great ideas and potato pancakes was one of them.  They turned out delicious!

This is the basic recipe I used, and it was pretty simple.  Most of it is probably stuff you’ve already got in your pantry & fridge…

A couple of thoughts…

  • I’m pretty sure the wringing the water out in a towel is an important step.  I looked at several recipes and they all stressed it.  I used a towel, maybe you’ve got a better trick.
  • It’s one of those “blank canvas” dishes because it’s so basic.  I just used salt & pepper, but you could play around with different herbs you like, and flavor it up like you like it.
  • I tried several toppings, including shredded cheese, ketchup, sour cream, and this Taco Bell Ranchero Sauce that would make a shoe taste good.  A couple of the recipes I looked at suggested applesauce, so I tried that too.

Anyway, give it a shot and let us know what you thought.  Liz & I already have our next cast iron dish picked out, and we are SUPER excited to try it…stay tuned!
