Backstory

This is one of my son's favourite foods. Great as an appetizer as a side or a small meal in itself.

Ingredients

  • 4 large potatoes(I use red but any will work)
  • 1 medium to large onion
  • 3 large eggs (I use double yolks)
  • 2 heaping tablespoons flour
  • 1 small handful chopped flat leaf parsley(can be omitted if you aren't a fan of it)
  • salt & pepper

Directions

  • Grate potatoes into bowl and rinse with cold water after all are grated.
  • Pour the grated potatoes into a colander and push out as much water as you can and return to bowl.
  • Add the onion which you can grate if you are brave enough or minced in a food processor, and the rest of the ingredients.
  • Salt and pepper are added to taste.
  • Give everything a stir to mix well. Prepare a large frying pan with enough oil to cover bottom about 1/4 inch and warm to medium high heat.
  • When oil is hot enough, use a ladle to ladle about 3/4 full or mixture to make each pancake. Continue until all the mixture is used up.
  • Fry until golden brown.
  • Serve these as is or top with sour cream or applesauce. Or the good ole standby ketchup which is my son's choice.
  • I have added some finely grated carrot to mine and it tasted pretty good. Try changing up the basics and making your own version. Enjoy!
