We all love our potatoes right? They are delicious, filling and so adaptable. You can fry, boil, steam, bake or even mash 'em. I love potatoes in all forms! And I'm always looking for new ways to make them more exciting.

These potato cheese pancakes were fantastic. I was looking for simple recipes that used minimal ingredients so that I could cater to those who have less time or even those who are on a budget. These potato cheese pancakes were on the top of my list. They are yummy, filling and the simple flavour speaks for itself.
