Potato Pancakes Two Ways

I’ve been having a craving for some comfort food in the form of potato pancakes. After searching for some recipes as a guide, and being unable to settle on just one type, I decided to try two different ones with different varieties of potatoes. Both were appetizing, but completely different in texture, so I’ll let you decide which you like better!

  • 2 cups garlic mashed potatoes
  • 2 eggs
