This fabulous German specialty is served as a standalone or with a plate of soup ahead. In Germany they will usually be served portion by portion. That means the 3 or 4 pancakes that fit into the skillet will be served to one and the next has to wait until next portion is ready. This will continue until the cook says stop and cares for his own which I recommend. You can't make them in advance and keep them warm or reheat them. The pancakes will become tough and lose most of their taste.
There are only a few ways that I like green beans. This is one of my favorites. It is so simple, but so tasty. This recipe is all about simple and you don't get more simple than green beans and potatoes cooked with onion, garlic and olive oil until soft and crispy. If you would like to make this is meal in itself you can add diced ham or crisp cooked and crumbled bacon when you add the vegetables to the hot oiled skillet. I like to serve it with a small green salad or a cucumber tomato salad.
A quick and easy sweet potato dish that is a good compliment to any meal, or even a quick meal on its own!
Creamy Yukon Gold potatoes make terrific potato pancakes. Serve with sour cream or something sweeter.
