Call It Supper: Summertime Potato Pancakes

“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” (Virgina Woolf)

At Call It Supper, we are continuing our celebration of summer by adding the season’s vegetables into dishes we know and love—one of which is the Potato Pancake (latke). Call It Supper author, Tori changed up this dish, which is traditionally served with apple sauce and/or sour cream to include corn in the mix and a tomato-basil salad to brighten up the flavors.

RECIPE: Summertime Potato Pancakes

I love potatoes because they are versatile and inexpensive. One of my favorite ways to enjoy them, besides in the chip or fry form, is as a pancake because it becomes a vessel for delicious toppings. For this recipe, I added in corn to the potato-onion mixture to add a bit of sweetness and char flavor and topped it with sour cream and a mixture of tomato, basil and champagne vinegar. Its an easy recipe that can be made into smaller rounds to entertain with the fixings on the side or as I did last week, in large rounds for a vegetarian meal.

Sarah and Tori started Call It Supper because they believe that a meal is always a strategic decision—never to be wasted, and have a passion for inventing recipes. Call It Supper is focused on seasonal, fresh recipes that are inspired by their travels, favorite restaurants and meaningful experiences. The ingredient lists will always contain something that is best had in that season.
The two became friends at Bowdoin College, where they started hosting dinner parties together. Back then, it was six packs and hors d’oeuvres, but today they have taken things a few steps further in the kitchen.
