Potato Pancakes For Two

YEARS AGO, my grandson requested a special dish to be included in his class cookbook, and this is the recipe I gave him. It was his favorite whenever he ate at our house, so he was delighted. I often still serve it as a side dish - it's a good complement to any entree. -Ede Righetti, Hayward, California (Taste of Home)
