Savory Potato Pancakes

I bought a huge bag of potatoes right when quarantine started.  As such we have used them in so many recipes.  These potato pancakes have been one of our favorites and are an amazing comfort food.  I love the original recipe I found on pinterest from Phal’s market but I made a few changes to add a little more flavor […]
