An easy recipe for savory potato pancakes that you make in a food processor. These pancakes are made with potatoes, eggs, cream, onion, and Saltine crackers. Serve these pancakes for breakfast or brunch with maple syrup and sausage on the side, and perhaps a dish of fruit or applesauce.
This recipe is for everyone that loves a savory pancake but does not want to go through the trouble of ricing potatoes. By using a food processor, the job of mixing the batter is a snap.
These pancakes turn out crispy and golden brown, not greasy and soggy because you use Saltine crackers in the recipe which helps keep them crisp.
You can also top them with applesauce, as the fruit complements the savory potato and onion quite nicely.
