Things You'll Need

  • Aluminum foil

  • Freezer bags

Potato pancakes can be found in cuisine of many different cultures and countries, most notably in Ireland, Germany and amongst Jewish populations. Traditionally, these pancakes -- made up mostly of potatoes, onions, eggs and matzo meal or flour -- are served hot with applesauce and sour cream. Due to the cooking method used for potato pancakes, it's typically more convenient to make large batches at a time as opposed to frequent small batches. Any leftover potato pancakes from a large batch can be stored for up to two months.


Step 1

Wrap the potato pancakes in aluminum foil once they cool down to room temperature. The pancakes must be completely covered with at least one layer of foil.
