Swiss Potato Pancakes Review by Birdie on December 9th, 2011:

Nice recipe. Just didn't work out too well for me. I made the potatos from scratch and reduced the portion sizes...does this recipe only work with shreded has brown potatos?
No matter what, there usually is some leftover oil, so be careful when you invert it that, the oil doesn't come out too. <- I wish there was a warning about that in the directions.
