These German potato pancakes offer a delightful departure from the usual pancake fare. They transform into a delectable dinner option when accompanied by Bratwurst sausages. I personally enjoy spreading them with cranberry sauce and drizzling them with maple syrup for an extra layer of flavor.

How to Make German Potato Pancakes:
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper.
Stir in the shredded potatoes and chopped onion until well combined.
Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Scoop heaping tablespoonfuls of the potato mixture into the skillet. Flatten them to form pancakes.
Fry each pancake for about 3 minutes on each side or until they turn brown and crisp.
Remove the pancakes and drain them on a paper towel-lined plate.
Continue with the remaining potato mixture until all pancakes are cooked.
Serve these savory German potato pancakes warm, topped with your favorite accompaniments. They’re sure to be a hit, offering a deliciously different take on the classic pancake experience!
