First of all, I think most people would agree that certain foods are naturally considered comfort foods. Maybe it’s because they remind us of a special time, person or place. For me, a comforting bowl of homemade vegetable soup or chili, a slice of Grandma’s favorite apple pie or a stack of good old-fashioned potato pancakes quickly bring back fond childhood memories.

Throughout my childhood, I distinctly remember the Pancake and Sausage Supper fundraiser our church hosted every winter. Church members helped with ticket sales and food preparation, serving and clean-up to ensure the event was successful. The menu consisted of standard pancakes, sausage patties, and good old-fashioned potato pancakes.
Regular pancakes are always popular, however, potato pancakes seem to be in a class all by themselves. Consequently, many people in the community would come to the pancake and sausage supper just for the good old-fashioned potato pancakes!
Just like Anna’s Green Low-Carb Protein Pancakes, good old-fashioned potato pancakes have their very own distinct texture, and taste. The pancakes are deliciously thin, golden brown and have crispy edges. Almost everyone serves them with a side of maple syrup, sour cream, or apple butter. (My dad’s favorite topping is apple butter.)
Good old-fashioned potato pancakes are quick and easy to make gluten-free. Furthermore, they are a fabulous way to use a few potatoes remaining in the bag. One full recipe yields approximately 6 to 8 medium/large size pancakes, depending on how big you make each pancake. Perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
