READY IN: 25mins




  • Line a large bowl with a piece of muslin or cheesecloth, or a clean linen towel.
  • Using the large holes of a box grater, grate the potatoes into the bowl.
  • Squeeze the cloth to extract as much of the starchy liquid as possible.
  • Discard the starchy liquid, return the potatoes to the bowl, and stir in the onion, eggs, salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
  • Add the flour and mix well.
  • In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium heat.
  • Drop the potato mixture, 1 tablespoonful at a time, into the skillet; do not crowd the pan.
  • Flatten each cake with a spatula and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned and crisp.
  • Transfer the cakes to a baking sheet and keep warm in a 200-degree oven.
  • Repeat until all the mixture is used, adding more butter as necessary.
  • Serve immediately.
