How to Make Perkins Potato Pancakes

Perkins Potato pancakes are a new twist you need to try if you’ve bored of the classic pancakes. They turn as delicious, soft, and fluffy on the outside as the ones you’re used to but more interesting. 

These pancakes are made with fresh potatoes, eggs, and flour. That pretty much does it. The ingredients are then pan-fried in oil. Spot a difference? 

This list of ingredients proves how simple a restaurant-style dish can be.

Ingredients:

(4 servings)

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 tsp butter (melted)
  • 3 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp fresh parsley (chopped)
  • 1 tbsp onion (minced)
  • 4 fresh russet potatoes (shredded)

Instructions

With regular pancakes, one always fears they will turn out flat, the butter will be oversized, or there will be too much oil. The result is not always satisfying, and the process requires you to be too meticulous

Perkins Potato Pancakes, on the other hand, is much easier in the matter. They will turn out well either way. You need to pay attention to a few things before you start. 

It will help if you let the batter rest for a while before cooking to allow the baking powder to work. It will make the pancakes soft and fluffy. 

And pay attention to the size of the pancakes. Please don’t make them too big since you will find them hard to flip with a pan or a spatula. 

Step 1: 

Combine all ingredients, except the potatoes, in a large mixing bowl and whisk the mixture thoroughly. You can use a mixer for a softer and smoother batter. 

Step 2: 

Add shredded fresh potatoes and combine them with the rest of the mixed ingredients. Set aside and let the mixture sit for 10-15 minutes. 

Step 3: 

Preheat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and pour a little butter into it. 

Note: add a few drops of the batter into the pan to see if it is heated enough. 

Step 4: 

Pour ¼ cup of batter into the pan—Cook as many pancakes as can fit into your pan in one round. Cook them for 2 minutes per side until you get crispy hash browns. 

Continue the process until you finish all the batter. 

Step 5: 

Pour batter on top of your potato pancakes and serve with honey mustard, syrup, green onions, or any of your favorite condiments.

Ingredient Substitution

Perkins Pancakes are not only super easy to make. You can also easily customize this recipe to fit your dietary requirements or preferences if you keep the potatoes in any form.

1. Half-and-Half

If you don’t have any milk on hand, you can easily use half-in-half instead. Moreover, you can expect a much richer flavor from a higher fat content in half-in-half. It is a combination of whole milk and cream. 

If it is too heavy, you can add some skim milk or even a small amount of water.

2. Vinegar

Vinegar is a common ingredient in many baked goods. It does have a strong, distinctive flavor. However, the acidic pH of vinegar makes it a perfect substitute for baking powder.  

Although any vinegar will work, the white one has the most neutral taste, so you won’t even notice it’s there. Substitute each baking powder with ¼ teaspoon baking soda and ½ teaspoon vinegar. 

3. Gluten-free Flour

If you want to make your Potato pancakes more vegan and remove the dairy ingredient, you may as well wish to substitute all-purpose flour for gluten-free flour. It is ready-to-use flour you can buy in most grocery stores.

They are mostly a blend of rice, potato, and tapioca starch, varying depending on the brand. But the best thing is the flavor and texture closest to the all-purpose flour.

What to Serve with Perkins Potato Pancakes

Usually, Perkins Potato Pancakes are usually served with various toppings, including applesauce, maple syrup, or sour cream. But they are also bacon and different sauces to complete the meal

Besides, you can pair it with a variety of fish and meat if you like. Potato Pancakes never disappoint no matter what you put on the side.

Smoky Red Pepper Crema

Serve your potato pancakes with a side of spicy red pepper crema for an exciting twist on brunch. This smoky dish is loaded with flavor that will leave you wanting more. This pairing is perfect for those days when you need a quick appetizer. 

The crema is made with roasted peppers, cilantro, and fresh tomatoes that give vibrant and fresh flavors. Try this lovely twist on your pancakes to wake up your taste buds.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Turn your Potato Pancakes into the ultimate comfort meal with a serving of thick and decadent broccoli cheese soup. All the ingredients mix into a complex and robust flavor that is crying out for some savory potato pancake to soak it all up.

Besides, it is a great way to sneak some extra veggies. You’ll love how the fluffiness of the pancakes feels against the cheesy soup.

Salmon

To make your Potato Pancakes even more exquisite, place a slice of smoked salmon on top of them. In this case, the pancakes will serve like “bread” to hold the toppings. 

Partner with a generous serving of parsley, hard-boiled eggs, and capers to take this even further. 

How to Reheat Perkins Potato Pancakes
