Nancy J.'s notes for this recipe:
From my (South Side Chicago) Irish friend, Coleen.
I Received most of her recipes in the late 90's. She has given me some really great authentic ones. She left Ireland in 1940. I will be putting more of them on Just A Pinch soon.

We loved these potato cakes! They are quick and easy to prepare and are so tasty.

Directions

1
Set half of the potatoes aside for later. Peel and cut remaining potatoes into large chunks; place in a saucepan. Cover with cold water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook 15-20 minutes, or untill tender. Drain and place in a large bowl. Mash potatoes and set bowl aside.
2
Now peel and grate reserved potatoes and stir them into the mashed potatoes. Add onion, flour, salt and pepper; mix well. Stir in milk and egg to form a batter.
3
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Drop batter from a tablespoon into the hot oil, and cook 3-4 minutes on each side; drain on a paper towel. Transfer to your serving dish and serve with applesauce and sour cream. Bet you can't eat just one!
