So easy to make potato pancakes. Don't need to precook potatoes. Just blend it and cook. Low Calorie Side Dish Recipe

I am sharing my Mom’s Blender Potato Pancake recipe with you today. She has been making these delectable potato pancakes for at least 20 years. I realized a year or two ago how low calorie they were. They are amazingly  easy to make, too. You put raw potatoes right into your blender. What a time saver. You don’t have to cook the potatoes first. With just  a few more ingredients, you are all set. Prep work cannot be more than 5 minutes. She always makes her Blender Potato Pancakes on a big electric griddle. This way you can cook at least 8 to 10 at a time. It helps the cooking time, because this recipe will make approximately 50. The only change I made was to replace all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour.

These Blender Potato Pancakes make a fabulous side dish with a pot roast. I do love to smother them with gravy. Sauerbraten is another favorite dish to serve them with. I plan on bringing you my Dad’s sauerbraten next year. Again it is that gravy that just sends these potato pancakes over the top. You can always go with a traditional German topping of applesauce and sour cream. Did I mention that each pancake is 11 calories. Yes 11 tiny little calories. That means you can have quite a few for dinner.
