Recipe by Pegger1

When my dad made these people would come out of the woodwork to eat them! They smell so good cooking and we used to love them as kids. They also reheat well in the microwave.

These are really wonderful! I gave the caraway a spin in a spice grinder just to break it up a bit (it was not fully ground) and had to drain quite a bit of liquid off the potatoes after grating (I used a food processor). I halved the recipe, using just two large potatoes and a small red onion. I added a little extra flour because there was so much liquid. These work well, no matter how big or small you make them (my first few were large, the rest a bit smaller). Thanks so much for the recipe!
