These can be served with sour cream or apple sauce. As a side or appetizer. My Mom made them in a blender but I think grating them is more time consuming but you'll get a better texture. I'm posting these for world tour and because my DH's requesting them!
- Finely grate potatoes and rinse with cold water 3 times till water runs clear. Add potato, onion in a large bowl with garlic. Drain and press out as much moisture as possible, using paper towels.
- Add egg yolk, flour, salt, peppers and parsley. Mix thoroughly.
- Fold in egg white.
- In a heavy skillet, pour in 1/4-inch of the oil and heat over high heat. For each pancake, drop in a heaping tablespoon of the mixture and press down with spatula. Brown until crisp on both sides.
- Enjoyed season with salt and pepper.
Yum, these are great! Loved the addition of cayenne pepper, garlic, and parsley. I grated the potatoes and onions by hand. Thanks for sharing! Veggie Swap
I have not tried this recipe but needed to add a note to just give a tip. Saw the recipe and read the donor's note about grating vs processor....My mother made the worlds finest potato pancakes (sorry guys and gals but it's true) I was the one elected (forced) to grate the potatos and onions. The grater was a tennis racket looking rectangular thing, very old. Not the box graters you see nowadays. I have no idea where you would find one, but if you did you would be rich indeed. The result needs to be a thickish mush...Not hunks and shreds of potatoes and onion...blend with just enough egg/flour to hold it together, salted liberally prior to frying. Seriously folks...get that stuff grated really well and this is a dish of the Gods
Excellent just like my Grandmom made. I'm happy someone put this online. Thank you!!!!
