Excellent recipe! I love that you've provided the instructions for using a food processor. I used Yukon Gold potatoes and left the skins on, and they still turned out great (no real difference)! I served them the way that my great-grandmother did--with a small sprinkle of sugar, scallions and with apple sauce and sour cream on the side. YUM!! Terrific with fresh kielbasa.
We tried these with burgers one night and they were a great compliment! It took about an hour for 2 of us to peel and shred the potatoes on the mandoline, mix the ingredients and fry up. No biggie since we had to get the charcoal grill ready anyways. We used a pan on one notch above medium and they were great on 3 minutes for each side...4 patties per pan. I put them on paper towels right from the pan so the oil could soak into the paper towel. I also added some garlic salt into the egg mixture. You could also add cheese but we didn't. I made 2/3 of a batch and got 14 cakes. The next time I will do less with only 2 of us, or I will make sure the teenagers are home and they will all be gone! I will most definitely keep this recipe in my binder and make them again soon!!! They would be great with breakfast too!!!
These are fantastic. I have never had these before. I ended up having to grate the potatoes and onion with a cheese grater and I almost did not make them because of that but I am glad that I did.
I mixed everything up and put it to the side while I prepared other foods. I noticed some liquid collecting in the bottom of the bowl and I was a little unsure, but I just pushed the potatoes up on the sides and everything was fine.
