Potato Pancakes


This is a "poor man's" recipe that's (still) common in all of of Germany. The German names vary depending on the region you are in, but the basic concept is always the same. It's used like a pancake or crepes or a tortilla or a plain pizza dough. You can put nearly everything on it and it tastes great. I introduced this as a starter to a cooking class I attended (in Waco, TX) and was totally surprised by the enthusiasm it induced in class. - bueggel
