Corn Kernels, Potato Pancakes
From: Vicky, Ontario, Canada
Comments: Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 6 to 7 minutes per batch + 10 minutes for potatoes
These really light pancakes are addictive; they are perfect to serve along with cooked bacon slices and sausages; great 'vegetable' to serve along with roast chicken.
If you have any leftover mashed potatoes in your refrigerator, substitute 2 cups [500 mL] mashed potatoes to baking potato mixture.
Servings: 16 [3-inch / 8-cm] pancakes
