3-4 small potatoes
1 medium white onion
1 tsp salt
Oil for frying – peanut or corn- just not olive.
This is a base recipe that can be double, tripled, quadrupled etc.
Grate potatoes and onion into a large boil. Add rest of ingredients, mix well. At this point, you can either let them sit for a short while or cook immediately. If you let sit, they will become watery and you’ll need to spill water off before frying.
To fry, heat oil through to a medium heat. Add heaping tablespoons of potato mixture and flatten them. Brown one side, flip. Repeat until mixture is finished.
Serve immediately with sour cream, Greek yogurt or apple sauce.
Note: You can vary the recipe anyway you want: sub sweet potato, add zucchini, carrot, parsnips etc. You get the picture.
