ingredients

directions

  • Boil potatoes in their skin until tender. Let cool. (Ideally, refrigerate overnight.) When cool, peel potatoes and grate them.
  • Add flour and salt and mix thoroughly. You should end up with floury crumbles.
  • Place the oil (or other fat) in a large frying pan over medium low heat. Gently fry and flip until the crumbles are nicely browned but not burned. Remove from the pan and serve with a dollop of sour cream on top. Tastes great with refreshing apple sauce.

    Thanks for posting this recipe, PanNan. We were looking for something light and flavorful, and this fit our needs nicely. I didn't have any applesauce, so I sliced up a few apples and fried them in butter with a bit of cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on top. The potatoes were surprisingly tasty on their own, but the dollop of sour cream on top added a bit of zing to each bite. Made for Culinary Quest 2017 (Austria).
