The Best Chive Potato Pancakes (Try these!)

There are so many ways to eat potatoes, but while we usually eat potatoes in the form of French fries or mashed potatoes, rarely do we eat them in the form of pancakes – a rather novel way of eating the humble potato. Today, we’re making potato and chive pancakes which are made with mashed potatoes, milk, eggs, cheese, chives and a little salt.

Start off by bringing a large pot of water to boil. As the water is heating up, peel your potatoes and then cut them into small cubes, then place them in the boiling water and allow them to cook for the next 30 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender, then use a potato ricer to mash the potatoes. Place the mashed potatoes, milk, eggs, chopped chives, grated cheese and salt in a large bowl and then mix until just combined. Allow the batter to chill in the refrigerator for the next 15 minutes.

When the batter has chilled, heat up a little coconut oil over medium heat in a large non-stick pan. Place half cup of batter in the middle of the pan to form a circle and then allow the batter to cook until the bottom is golden brown, and then flip it over with a spatula and allow it to cook until the other side is also golden. Repeat until all the batter has been used up. Now, all you need to do is to serve the pancakes with fresh greens, garnish them with chopped chives and tuck in to a delicious meal!
