These were very simple and delicious. Soaking up the liquid from the potatoes is the key to the crispy success! I will definitely make them again.
I am Czech. Adding a little garlic is great. Make in food processor or blender. Put in bowl and tip slightly to drain. Save a few for next morning . Cut up and break eggs and cook slightly. PERFECT!!!!
The green specs are onions
May I recommend mixing all ingredients first-then grating/adding potatoes at very last. They turn grey rapidly! Been making for years.
This is a family favorite - we always have these with breakfast sausages, syrup and plum jam. It's a great fast meal with a nice blend of hearty pancakes, tart jam and the sweetness of syrup.
My dad, german heritage used to make delicious potato pancakes. They were potatoey and with onion. I especially remember when he got the old wooden handled grinder and hooked it to the table, he would be making a favorite food. He would put a pan on the floor to catch all of the potato starch liquid. If at a garage sale, look for one of these grinders. It’s old fashioned and fun!! I kept dads!! This recipe great just as shown unless you wants to use. white or yellow onion. Don’t overpower. Better with a little ketchup if anythi g. Drop the syrup.
I am of polish descent also, We use red skin potatoes and no onion. Top them with sour cream as a meal and with sugar or jelly as a dessert. Yum!
We omit the onion and pour syrup over them like you do on pancakes. We don't have these very often because all of us could eat and eat these.
Hexesharon... If I had to guess, I'd say the green was chopped parsley. Personally, I would add chopped chives, and serve with applesauce. That's how us Polacks eat them!
why do they have green specks ?
