This was SO good. I hesitate to say this next thing because I fear some of you will hear the words I’m about to say and run off in the opposite direction. Which would be a shame, because these were delicious!
Okay… Here it goes: these tasted almost like curly fries.
Confession: I love curly fries.
Still here? Brilliant! Read on, friend.
This tasted like curly fry seasoning to me. This surprised me, since the seasoning was nothing more than a little paprika, salt, and garlic powder (plus a little cayenne because we’re wild and crazy). For some reason, I always imagine curly fry seasoning to have 300 secret herbs and spices. Oh well! Simple is best. The good news is that these are significantly healthier than curly fries, and they provide an excellent base to add on to.
I like serving potato pancakes like this one in wedges, topped with something tasty. You could serve it with a bit of cooked sausage, dollop of sour cream, a runny egg, or (as Adam and Joanne did) with a bit of ricotta and a few tomatoes. On the other hand, you can serve it plain with a little side salad and call it good.
The seasoning mixture is forgiving as well. Next time, I might try adding in a bit of fresh parmesan or making a fancy ketchup to serve alongside (maybe chipotle ketchup?).Print
