Potato Pancake with mozzarella and onions
Happy Friday everyone, how was your week?
Mine was a little bit busier. With the temperatures finally decent here, we’ve been able to get out and do more things, which has meant some quicker dinners on some days. One of my favorite quick dinners to prepare is a savory breakfast (if it’s your favorite too, then you should also try my sweet potato skillet!).
This is a pretty quick recipe to put together. Just shred some potato and cheese, add the flour egg and parsley, chop a bit of onion and you’re ready to cook. Add an egg or two for some protein and you’ve got a filling meal. I like to spend time in the kitchen preparing dinner, but on those busy days, this recipe is just perfect. I hope you like it too. I like to make a spicy yogurt to go with it, but I love spicy food. You could switch that out for some sour cream if you prefer. Or salsa!
Have a great weekend.
