Ginger Potato Pancakes with Herbed Goat Cheese

Today was one of those days where I feel the need to cook something different. Believe it or not I haven’t had that many potato pancakes in my life. I always thought they were kind of boring. I know you are probably thinking I’m crazy, right? Well, I don’t think that way anymore. 

I’ve been playing around with different flavors and I found that the ginger-potato combination works quite beautifully and the addition of herbed goat cheese is just fantastic.  I am now officially addicted to it.


4 large potatoes, peeled

1/4 cup yellow onion, finely chopped

2 large eggs, beaten

salt and pepper to taste

1 garlic clove

1/2 tbsp ginger

canola oil for frying

Using a grater, coarsely grate the potatoes. With a kitchen towel, squeeze out all the water over a bowl, the idea is to squeeze out as much water as you can. In a mixing bowl, place the potatoes, onion, ginger, garlic, eggs, salt and pepper, mix until well combine. Heat a non-stick pan and coat the bottom with oil. Take about 1/4 cup of the mixture and place it on the pan, quickly try to flatten the pancake with the back of a spoon and let it cook for a couple of minutes until golden. Flip the pancake over and  cook the other side. Serve while still warm.
