Every family has a favorite recipe.I tweaked and tweaked and came up with this, my favorite recipe. Mine are shredded into a bowl of cold water..
These turn out to be crispy, crunchy,and delicious!
To die for...LOL
- 2to-2-1/2 lb
- baking potatoes.......like idahos, etc.
- 1 medium
- sweet onion
- 1/3 c
- dried parsley........i dry my own
- 2 large
- salt & pepper .....to taste
- veggie oil for frying
Hand grate potatoes right into the cold water.P
Peel and quarter the onion, ang grate into the bowl with the potatoes.
Let sit for 15 minutes.
Save this sediment (potato starch) for later!
Then mix in the squizzes potato shreds to bowl with the eggs.
Heat a skillet with the oil.
Put a spoon full of potatoes into the hot oil,flattenthe potate with a spatuls...fry for a few minutes, turn and fry the other side. 3-4 minutes.
Drain on paper towels..
Then put on a wire rack to cool, or serve immediately.
I usually make a larger batch...flash freeze the put in plastic bags and back into the freezer.
Later they can be crisped up in a 350 F oven.
Great served with applesauce,and or sour cream.
