Ham and Cheese Potato Pancakes are the perfect fast, easy, delicious meal to satisfy every one of your comfort food cravings!!
Ham and Cheese Potato Pancakes … don’t those just sound easy?? .. and delicious? .. and happy?
Are you like me and have those nights when you just don’t want to figure out what to make for dinner? Not the “chicken or fish” night…. I mean the night when putting together a successful bowl of cereal would be a challenge.
Yup… THAT night!!!
Well, I found the perfect Go To for those nights when you have been running around all day and you are tired and the clothes washer broke (on Full and with clothes in it) and the dog ate your favorite shoes and the kids … hey, where ARE the kids? …
These are not pretty and they are not fancy but oh my goodness… they are good!!! I confess that I am a fan of the pretty food. These Ham and Cheese Potato Pancakes are not it. But they are fast to bring together … 5 minutes kinds of fast!! … and they are comforting after a long
crappy day. I found the original recipe on the Simply Potato website and added my own extra ingredients.
Now, my only recommendations are to double the recipe if you are serving more than 2-3 people. This recipe only makes about 12 pancakes and they are not huge. Also, when you are flipping these on the griddle or in your pan.. COMMIT TO THE PROCESS! There can be no timid oochy schoochy with the spatula under the pancake .. go big or stay home! I found if i gingerly tried to flip these, they fell apart more… and they WILL fall apart.. that ham doesn’t want to stay in there for anything. But don’t worry, when it falls apart on a flip, coax it back together and when the second side is cooked, flip one extra time. These are a little belligerent but very forgiving .. and very worth it!!!
Psst… Now that we are friends, don’t you think we should spend some more time together? That’s what besties do, right? Don’t forget to follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest .. and yup, even Instagram!
