I declare this week a potato week on What’s on the plate! As I probably mentioned once or twice in the past I love potatoes (as much as one can love a vegetable). I grew up eating variety of potato dishes and it just stayed with me, so now I make sure to always have some in my pantry. Potato pancakes are very often served in Poland; the best obviously were those my grandma used to make ;). In my family we top them with sugar, sometimes mushroom (my another love) or meat sauce. The other toppings include sour cream, applesauce or just salt. Actually Wikipedia provides quite nice article regarding potato pancakes that you can read here.
