My husband and our four children like pancakes, and I appreciate quick I gave this recipe a try when I saw it. The addition of turkey turns golden side-dish potato pancakes into a simple main dish we all savor. -Kathy Duerr, Fulda, Minnesota

  • 3 cups shredded peeled potatoes
  • 1-1/2 cups finely chopped cooked turkey
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions with tops
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • Canola oil
  • Cranberry sauce, optional


  1. In a sieve or colander, drain the potato, squeezing to remove excess liquid. Pat dry; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the turkey, onions, flour and salt. Stir in eggs until blended. Add the reserved potatoes; toss to coat.
  2. Heat about 2 tablespoons of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Drop batter by 1/3 cupfuls into oil. Fry in batches until golden brown on both sides, using remaining oil as needed. Drain on paper towels.
  3. Serve with cranberry sauce if desired.
