    Potato, Cheese and Chives Pancakes with Esquites

    [​IMG]

    Firstly, chop and fry up some bacon until crispy. Put to the side, drain most of the fat and keep the pan handy.

    Potato, Cheese & Chives Pancakes

    Ingredients:
    Lieber's Latkes Potato Pancake Mix - or make your own from scratch.
    Cheese, grated
    Chives, chopped
    2 Eggs
    2 Cups water

    Method:
    Make potato pancake mix according to packet - beat the two eggs, mix in the cold water, stir in the pancake mix. Sit until thickened and stir again. Stir in the cheese and chives.

    Pour some oil into your pan, heat over a medium heat, scoop in some pancake mix to your desired size. Cook until the bottom browns then flip.

    Repeat for the rest of the mix.

    Esquites

    Ingredients:
    Frozen/canned/fresh corn kernels
    1/2 teaspoon minced garlic or a clove or two crushed
    Lime juice, fresh or bottled
    Mayo, I use that Kewpie mayo from the asian section.
    Coriander, chopped - or leave it out if you don't like it.
    Paprika
    Chilli powder
    Avocado, chopped into chunks.

    Method:
    Heat up the pan you fried your bacon in and dump in some corn, I think we used around 2-3 cups. Cook until the corn starts browning.

    Put in your minced garlic and fry another minute or so.

    Stir in some lime juice.

    Remove from heat and pour into a bowl.

    Stir in some mayo. Not a lot, just enough to lightly cover the corn. Add your Paprika and chilli powder to taste. Add some coriander or leave it out if you don't like it. Add your avocado.

    Plating up

    Pop a pancake or two in a stack, put a little butter on to melt. Dollop some sour cream on top, sprinkle with crispy chopped bacon. Spoon your Esquites on the side.

    Enjoy!
