I found this recipe + just doubled it [+ tweaked slightly] it as I was going to bring in the goods to work if I was successful.
- 2/3 cup of potatoes, grated
- 1/4-1/2 onion, finely diced
- 2 tbsps all-purpose flour
- 1 egg yolk
- Salt + freshly ground pepper
- Vegetable oil
- Olive oil
- 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
Add some olive oil + onion to saucepan + cook until golden brown. Season with a pinch of salt + pepper and put to the side.
After grating the potatoes, you want to get out as much of the water as possible. Whether you wring it out in a towel, or wring out small amounts in a paper towel, wring away. Put in a bowl and fold in the flower, onions and salt + pepper. Add in the yolk, mix until evenly combine + then add parsley.
Drizzle vegetable oil to your pan, and once hot, add a spoonful [choose the amount you prefer] of the potato mixture to the pan + flatten with a spatula. Cook 2-3 minutes/until golden brown [I always cook a little extra when dealing with a mixture that involves egg]. Flip + repeat. Remove from heat + place on paper towels to cool.
Top with your choice of goodies - apple sauce for dessert, sour cream for a savory snack, or smoked salmon for a perfect breakfast.
