Did anyone score some awesome deals on Black Friday? I had my SUV packed to its limit. I was out (with my Mom & sister) from 11:30 PM on Thanksgiving until 8:00 AM Friday. One of the items that I couldn't pass up was this Cuisinart 7 cup food processor at Kohl's:
I've been eyeing food processors for a little while and I finally couldn't resist anymore!After staring at it for a few days, I finally put it to good use last night and made one of Hubster's favorite side dishes - German Potato Pancakes. I was so excited about the shredder that I may have shredded 8 russet potatoes...to feed 3 people...we have *ahem* a few leftovers ;)
German Potato Pancakes
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons flour (whatever you have on hand)
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons chives, chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 medium sweet onion, minced
3 medium potatoes, washed and shredded (I make my pancakes with the skin on)
1/4 cup oil for frying
3-4 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled (optional)
1 - In a large bowl, mix together eggs, flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, garlic, bacon and chives.
2 - Add in potatoes and onion.
3 - Heat griddle (or large skillet) over medium heat
4 - Once hot, drizzle a bit of oil onto the surface and drop heaping tablespoons of the potato mixture onto the griddle/skillet
5 - Cook 3-5 minutes on each side until golden brown and crisp
6 - Drain on paper towels
Now that I don't have to shred the potatoes by hand, I might be adding these to some holiday party menus!
