Loaded Potato Pancakes

I recently traveled to Wisconsin to meet my new in-laws. I got this recipe from my husband's grandma who is 94 years old! She told me her father and mother, who are of German descent, would eat these for dinner. To mix it up I decided to add cheese, bacon, green onions, and sour cream.

These are pretty simple and they please the masses! They also make a great side dish for steak.

Loaded Potato Pancakes
makes 5 pancakes
print this recipe

2 cups of cooked potatoes, shredded or grated – peel and chill first
1 egg
1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 slice bacon, cooked and roughly chopped
1 pinch of baking powder
1 ½ tsp salt
1 Tablespoon of flour
2 chopped green onions, reserving darker ends to garnish
sour cream for serving


I used red potatoes for my pancakes, but normal russets will work well, too.


Mix all ingredients in a bowl and form into patties.


Fry in a skillet with oil (I used the left over bacon grease). You'll want the potatoes to be browned on both sides and set in the middle.


Serve topped with sour cream and remaining chopped green onions. Enjoy!
