  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes, and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain, cool and shred.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, mix milk, butter and garlic. Bring to a gentle boil, then mix in potatoes, ham and Cheddar cheese. Season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture reaches a dough-like consistency.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Drop potato mixture by rounded spoonfuls into the oil, and cook, turning once, until lightly browned on both sides.

Like the other reviewer said it needs an egg so it doesn't fall apart. I made one batch and added an egg to the second batch and they stayed together.

The batter didn't have any egg, therefore it falls apart when trying to fry it. I suggest using an egg and throwing in a little bit of onion to improve the taste as well.

I scaled the recipe up to eight, and followed all the conversions. I used ground beef instead of ham. Also, instead of oil I used PAM cooking spray to coat my skillet. The pancakes turned out...

I "mashed" rather than shredded the potatoes for a fluffier texture. I also substituted the ham for "english spinach". A nice variation of the original recipe. Very YUMMY!!!

I like the addition of ham and cheese in potato pancakes. It goes really well with applesauce on top. But I think I should have done what one reviewer did and just mashed the potatoes or used ...

These were pretty good, tasted better the more we ate. Although they were more time consuming than I would have liked. Next time I may try to cook them in the oven on my large stoneware bar pan.
