You can have them with about anything you would like, eggs, steak, burgers, add some salsa, a little sat, pepper, ham, the list goes on to your likings.
George helped y'all with what to do with them, just use some imagination and add what ever strikes your fancy.

We also used to have fried fish for breakfast, Herring perhaps? Whatever it was, apparently it became hard to find, as we rarely had it after I grew up, and I asked about it once.

Add seasonings (salt, pepper, garlic, cooked diced onions, cooked diced peppers, etc)
Add other (I've had them with a little shredded cheese, bacon bit sized pcs of [ham/chicken/pork]
some people add a bit of milk if the spuds are dryish.
About 1/2 cup per cake & cook like pancakes over medium-low heat on an oiled pan. Resist the temptation to flip to soon, they need to heat clear thru and brown on the outside. If you add anything with water in it (veggies) make sure you Don't make the "batter” watery with it. Much longer and more difficult process... Also not very cosmetically pleasing, even tho the taste is the same.
Last time I had them, I went all southern on them. Bunch of seasonings, Green Chillies and all that. Then I did a sunny side up and flopped it on top. I was a walking certs proving ground, but I was full and happy

An old family tradition. We all go running, when Mom says she's making it for
If she's willing to let her secret recipe out, I'll post it.
It's one of the only meals, that I can think of, that doesn't have meat, and
I'm thrilled to have it for supper.

I really like potato pancakes. * note, PANCAKES .... NOT made with left over mashed potatoes, but with raw, grated potatoes. They're similar to the frozen hash browns that you buy in the freezer section. My father was Polish, and we called them Platski. I also think they are called Blinis.
