    ztkl40a's Note:

    Making fastnachts on Fastnacht Day (Shrove Tuesday) is a Pennsylvania Dutch tradition. They are basically a potatoe based donut. This recipe was given to me by my mother, and is very similar to the one that my Pennsylvania Dutch great grandmother used.

      This is called "aardappelkroketten", (potatoecroqette) In Holland will replace our french fries, cooked patatoes for the kroketten and eat with vegetables & meat. Also great with "bitterballen" and beer for a great foodgrab in front of the telly.
