Idaho (Potato Pancakes)

This week in our study of the Western States is Idaho. The capital of Idaho is Boise. Did you know the Idaho comes from a Shoshoni Indian word that means "it's morning" or "the sun comes down the mountain"? Idaho is known for having the world's best potatoes. Since we're talking potatoes here's a recipe we tried…



POTATO PANCAKES
(from COOKS.COM)

Ingredients:
2 c. leftover mashed potatoes
1/4 c. flour
1/4 c. milk
1 egg, beaten
1/4 c. onion, chopped
Bacon drippings or cooking oil
Salt & pepper to taste (optional)

Directions:
Combine mashed potatoes, flour, milk, egg, and onions. Salt and pepper as desired. Form into 3 inch round patties and fry in bacon drippings or cooking oil. Brown on both sides. Drain and serve.

Potatoes are one of my favorite foods although I have to eat them in moderation ;-) We enjoyed these potato pancakes recipe. They are good with sour cream, ketchup, or you can top them with your leftover gravy if you have any on hand like we did. If you are from Idaho we would love for you to share a potato recipe with us to try. I'll be back next week to tell you what's next in our study of the Western States. Thank you again for stopping by to learn along with us.
