As a product of a Texas ranching family,  I was raised on “rib-sticking” meals which usually meant that Meat & Potatoes were involved.  Fond memories surround these meals…not the breakfasts though. The first meal of the day was before the sun rose and then we were pushed into the cold to ride horseback for hours! Yikes, but it was character building.

When I saw this recipe from our friends at Authentic Foods, I was reminded of those wonderful patties my mom makes. These are a little different – Gluten free, Dairy free, Lactose Free, Soy Free and Yeast free.  You have an option to add more items depending on your specific limitations.  Try this one and let us know how it works for you.  Saddle Up!


¼ cup Authentic Foods Potato Flour                                                                 

Gluten Free Potato Patties

Gluten Free Potato Patties

½ cup Authentic Foods Tapioca Flour

¾ teaspoon baking powder

¼ teaspoon Authentic Foods Xanthan Gum

¼ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon garlic powder

2 large eggs (or Egg Replacer)

¼ cup vegetable oil (preferably light olive oil)

¼ cup chopped onions (Optional)

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (Optional)

4 oz shredded Monterey jack cheese (Optional)


Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl: Authentic Foods Potato Flour, Authentic Foods Tapioca Flour, baking powder, Authentic Foods Xanthan Gum, salt, and garlic powder (also add onions, parsley and cheese if preferred). In another bowl, mix all liquid ingredients: eggs, oil and milk. Then add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture and blend.

Grease a griddle or skillet with oil to keep the pancakes from sticking. Then preheat the griddle or skillet to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Using a large tablespoon, drop batter to make 2-inch diameter pancakes. Cook first side until edges look dry. With a spatula, turn and cook until second side is golden brown.

Serve with apple sauce or sour cream.
