Potato pancakes make a hearty meal that will certainly cure any case of hunger for breakfast in the morning.

They can be eaten by themselves as the main course or served as a breakfast side dish with a slice of ham or scrambled eggs. The are a nice savory complement to some of the sweeter brunch items.

If you are concerned about them being too filling in comparison to the other items on your brunch menu, make them silver dollar size. That way everyone gets to try them, but won’t get totally filled up on only this one item.
