Potato pancakes (placki kartoflane)


Grate 2-1/4 lbs peeled potatoes. To grated potatoes add 1 or 2 grated onions, about 2 T flour, and 2 eggs and salt & pepper.

Mix well and spoon batter into hot oil on a pan.

Flatten pancakes slightly with spatula, since thin ones cook better.

Fry to a nice crispy, golden brown on both sides and drain on absorbent paper or paper towel.

Serving Suggestions

Serve with sour cream, sugar or apple sauce. Some people like them just plain, perhaps with only a pinch of salt for flavoring. They can also be drenched with a gravy or mushroom sauce.
