We celebrated my Dad’s birthday on Sunday with his favorite meal of roast pork, potato pancakes – Kartoffelpuffers to be precise – and sauerkraut.
German Potato Pancakes (Kartoffelpuffer) – makes 16
Betty Crocker International Cookbook
- 4 medium potatoes
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 t. salt
- 1/4 butter or oil
Shred enough potatoes to measure 4 cups; drain. Mix potatoes, eggs, onion, flour and salt. Heat 2 T. of fat in skillet on medium heat until hot. Pour in about 1/4 cup batter for each pancake. Flatten each with spatula into pancake about 4 inches in diameter.
Cook pancakes until gold brown, about 2 minutes on each side. Keep warm in oven. Repeat with remaining batter. Add more oil/butter if needed.
I like mine with applesauce and sour cream.
