Combine all ingredients in bowl and mix well. Let stand 10 – 15 minutes to allow flavors to enhance. In 10″ to 12″ skillet, heat oil to hot over medium heat. Once oil is hot, ladle the potato mixture into skillet and flatten pancakes into 4″ to 5″ circles. Allow to brown for about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Place pancakes on paper towels to soak up any excess oil. Serve immediately with sour cream, maple syrup or applesauce and your favorite entree.
