are potato pancakes made from grated potato mixed with seasonings
and then pan fried. The frying oil reminds us of the oil that burned
eight days, giving origin to the Festival of Lights, Hanukkah, and
- 4 cups peeled, grated potatoes
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1½ tsps salt
- 2 tbsps flour
- 2 eggs
- pepper to taste
- ¼ cup vegetable oil
Wash, peel, and grate the potatoes. Squeeze out liquid. Combine
with onion, salt, flour, and pepper. Lightly beat the egg, and stir
into the mixture.
Heat the oil in a skillet, and spoon in tablespoons of the mixture
to make medium sized patties. Brown on one side, turn and brown
lightly on the other. Repeat with the rest of the mixture.
Serve with applesauce, cottage cheese, yogurt, sour cream, or Bittersweet
Plantation Dairy Creole Cream Cheese.
