Receta Mushroom Filled Potato Pancakes

These are healthy, relatively low calorie, and very tasty potato pancakes that I adapted from Jacques Pepin. Sauteed simply in a little oil, they have about 200 calories in each serving of three pancakes. I served them as a side dish to Chicken Chasseur (will post soon), but they would also make a great appetizer.

  • 4 to 5 potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds), cleaned and cut in half or quarters
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 5 tablespoons canola oil
  • 4 shallots, peeled and thinly sliced (1/3 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled, crushed, and finely chopped (1 teaspoon)
  • 4 ounces mushrooms, chopped (1/4 cup)
  • 12 oil-cured black olives, pitted and cut into 1/2-inch dice (optional...substitute an additional 1/4 cup mushrooms if you prefer)


  1. Place the potatoes in a saucepan, and cover with cool water. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low, and boil gently for 20 minutes or until tender. Remove the potatoes,
  2. and let them cool. Then peel them, and push them through a food mill or mash. Season with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet or saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil, add the shallots, and saute for 1 minute. Add the garlic and mushrooms, and cook for about 3 minutes, until almost dry. Remove from the heat, and add the olives and the remaining salt and pepper. Cool.
  4. Divide the cold potato puree into twenty-four balls of equal size. Arrange the balls about 6 inches apart on a large sheet of plastic wrap. Cover with a second piece of plastic, and press on each ball to create a pancake about 1/3-inch thick. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the mushroom mixture onto each of twelve pancakes; cover with the remaining pancakes.
  5. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in each of two large nonstick skillets over medium to high heat. When hot, add the filled pancakes in a single layer, and cook them for about 3 minutes until lightly browned. Turn carefully with a large spatula, and cook for about 3 minutes on the other side. Remove to a serving platter, and serve immediately, or set aside and reheat in the oven or under the broiler just before serving.

    I'd rate these 5 hearts for flavor, but they are bit more work than I prefer for an every night dish. Try these for a dinner party when you want to impress!

          Hi John
          I made the pancake. delicious and healthily.

            Sounds fantastic and also pretty affordable. I wonder if I could just chop up a few of my herby pickled mushrooms ( for the filling to make it easier for a weeknight? Another thought--baking these off on parchment instead of frying could be a lot easier. I'll let you know if I try! Another stuffing that might be great--sauerkraut! ( Thanks, John!

              Seems worth experimenting with Bad Mama. I can imagine a lot of different stuffings would taste good.

              hi john, thanks for the recipe it is good for those who have to take care of their calories, however for those who want to try this pancake would taste better if we dip the un-cook pancake in white egg + a bit of wheat flour before frying/cooking it.
