 Rich Fortnum (fortnum@nic.hookup.net) asked for a low fat
 potato pancake recipe. Here's mine (in the Healthy Heart Handbook):
 Potato Pancakes (Latkes)  (T)
 1.5 C shredded potato (can use frozen "Simply Potato" shreds)
 2 T oat flour (or 2 T rolled oats milled into flour)
 1/4 C chopped onion (or 4 T dried onion)
 1/4 C water      
 pinch salt, fresh ground black pepper
 Mix flour and water, add onions and potato. Add a bit more 
 water if needed to form thick pancake batter.  Fry till golden 
 brown with some darker spots in non-stick pan with a 1/2 second 
 spray of Pam.  Serve with applesauce.  Makes 4 large pancakes.
 I've had very good results with the plastic bags of frozen Simply Potato,
 a shredded potato that is the only one I could find without added oil. 
 More costly than shredding your own potato, it saves time and also
 makes excellent hash browns (add onions, fry in non-stick pan, no oil). 
 Putting a little rolled oats into a blender or coffee mill makes oat
 flour in a jiffy. No need to go out and buy and store oat flour.
