My family has served this recipe for years only we do not use mashed cooked potatoes just raw grated potatoes. We add choped raw union to the batter as well just as much as you like but ususally about 12 of a large onion. They are great for breakfast, lunch or an evening meal.

Yum!..Yum! I have always made these for Breakfast.. when I was raising my 5 kids (now grown) we would often have "UPSIDE DOWN DAY" where they were served, along with bacon or sausage eggs for Dinner!! I still make them for myself..or company!! Never have had any complaints!!
