Simple and satisfying -- thanks to my friend and colleague, Naomi, who gave me this recipe. Pop 'em in your mouth and let me know if they aren't good....

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Finely grate the potato and the onion.
  2. Mix all ingredients together well, either by hand or with a mixer.
  3. You can chill this for an hour or so in the fridge, but I don't usually do so.
  4. Roll into small balls (if I were measuring there'd probably be betwen a teaspoon and a Tablespoon of meat mixture for each one).
  5. Flatten ever so slightly.
  6. Roll the meat into balls/patties before you start to fry.
  7. Heat about 1/2 inch of oil in a large frying pan-- put in a layer of meatballs and fry for approximately 5 minutes on each side.
  8. If you use a very large pan you can fry them all up in 2 or 3 batches.
  9. If your pan is smaller, however, you may need to change oil halfway through to prevent the later batches from getting too brown on the outside before they're thoroughly cooked inside.
