6. Potato Pancakes

Potato pancakes, commonly known in Germany as Kartoffelpuffer, are a tasty breakfast food that any potato lover would write home about!

These pancakes are made with finely grated potatoes, onion, egg, flour, and sea salt.

It’s important that the potatoes are finely grated, as this ensures they cook quickly and evenly.

The trick is to drain and squeeze the potatoes of any liquid remaining. If you skip this step, the pancakes won’t get that gorgeous golden crisp edge.

Kartoffelpuffer can be served sweet or as a savory pancake. Most commonly they’re served with applesauce or fruit compote, and are dusted with powdered sugar.
