I have many favorite Amish restaurants but one of them is Yoder’s in Sarasota, Florida. Yoder’s is located in the Amish enclave of Pinecraft on Bahia Vista Blvd. It’s a popular eatery with Amish and non-Amish alike. They are known for their fried chicken and pies, but they also offer homemade noodles, pancakes, and about any other stick-to-your ribs entree you can imagine. I’ve written about them before but it bears repeating that they serve amazing food at great prices. A couple of my good friends were there yesterday partaking in mashed potatoes, chicken, dumplings,and potato pancakes. Yum! Looks amazing doesn’t it? Here is a recipe from my Amish archives for homemade potato pancakes, probably the same recipe used at Yoder’s.
- HOMEMADE POTATO PANCAKES
- 2 cups of leftover mashed potatoes
- 2 tablespoons flour
- sprinkle of parsley
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon chopped onion
- Mix all ingredients together. Shape into pancakes and fry in lightly greased frying pan on medium high heat until golden brown on both sides.
