This recipe is from Semi-Homemade with Sandra Lee. The only variation I made is that the original recipe calls for rose water and I use just regular tap. I love this recipe for two reasons, the actual pancake has some real flavor from the Leek soup mix and the scallions. I find a lot of potato pancakes to be far too bland for my taste buds. The one tablespoon of pancake mix also helps hold everything together better.
The second reason I love this recipe is you can serve it for breakfast like I did this morning or as an hors d’oeuvre for a small dinner party. I would not recommend this for a large party because they really are best right out of the skillet.
Oh, and I guess there is a third reason I love this recipe. It calls for packaged hash browns. No cooking and grating potatoes and soaking the potatoes. Just open the bag and getting cooking. Love it!
