Ham & Potato Pancakes

1- 20 oz bag of shredded potatoes
1- 1/2c. diced ham
2 eggs, beaten
1/4c. flour
1T. dried parsley
salt & pepper
onion powder
garlic salt

Mix all together, heat 2T. olive oil in a skillet. Place potatoes in mounds and flatten into round patties. Cook about 2 -3 min on each side.

Very good, they even got the seal of approval from all 4 kiddos,
that's certainly a plus.

They were really difficult to make though,
because as you can see here-

There was a little snitcher that
kept taking my diced ham out!
Every time I turned my back-

She thought it was quite funny :) :) :p

Darn Kids, ya gotta watch 'em every second!

I've never thought to add ham to potato pancakes. Even more, I've never thought to serve them for breakfast- genius!

Your girl is too cute!

I never think to make potato pancakes, even though I loved them growing up. Thanks for the recipe. Hubby won't eat pork so I may have to sub turkey bacon.

Your daughter is precious, btw!

That looks amazingly good. I don't think I've ever had them tho. And I used to do the same thing as your daughter. Actually I still do! haha

Daughter is a cutie!!

Loving the idea of these for breakfast, sounds delicious!

I don't love ham, so I would probably do bacon, but this sounds awesome!

Oh, those look so good! I think my kids would be stealing the ham, too!

I left instructions on how to store simple syrup in the comments on my blog. I forgot to say that you can substitute superfine sugar in your drinks if you don't want to make the syrup. I prefer the simple syrup because it always mixes thoroughly with no sugary grit at the bottom. Even though it's supposed to, I don't think superfine sugar dissolves completely.

What a great idea! I love that you use store-bought potatoes instead of shredding them yourself. What a time saver! One question: are they frozen or fresh? Did you still have to squeeze water out of them?

When my little sous chef helps in the kitchen I often find myself short ingredients too. Hey, at least it was something healthy!

Thank you for leaving such a sweet comment on my blog. I appreciate it so much.

that looks delicious! and easy too! love your little "helper" too!

my mom used to make potato pancakes by shredding potatoes; not sure what she added with to the potatoes, but then she would cook them in oil; tasted scrumptiously good too!

enjoy the day

Awww cute. But it's worth it. All her life she'll remember sneaking food while you cooked when she was little!

Holly said...

That sounds pretty good! :)

Hmm, i'm gonna have to try these as my two year old is one picky eater and hopefully she grows out of it.
