Guide On Making The Tastiest Herbed Potato Pancakes:


  • 1 1/2 lb. russet potatoes (about 4 potatoes)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup chopped chives
  • 1/3 cup chopped dill
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • oil for frying


Start by peeling the potatoes and onion.

Next, using a box grater, finely grate the potatoes.

After grating the potatoes coarsely grate the onion, putting both the grated potatoes and onion in the same bowl.

Then, carefully, drain as much of the liquid as you can from the bowl and discard it in the drain.

Now, add the eggs, herbs, flour, salt, and pepper to the bowl with the potatoes and onion. Then mash and mix everything together using a fork.

After making the herbed potato mixture, heat up some oil in a large, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Once the pan has heated up, add a spoonful of the potato mixture, spreading it slightly.

Finally, fry the herb potato mixture for about 2-3 minutes on each side, until the pancakes are crispy and golden brown. For best results, serve immediately.

If desired, top with sour cream or your favorite topping.
