Side Dish for September: Polish Potato Cake Recipe

Poland and most of Eastern Europe tend to opt for grain dishes, such as kasha, to accompany most meals.  However, Poland does use some potato and these potato cakes are really easy to make.  The small discs are tasty, crunchy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside.  Here’s my recipe…

Ingredients

450g mashable potatoes

50g butter

1 small white onion

45ml sour cream

3 eggs

25g plain flour

25g breadcrumbs

Instructions

Boil the potatoes until cooked, strain and adding half the butter, mash until smooth

Fry the chopped onion in the remaining butter until soft and add the sour cream

Blend the onion mix if you want a fine texture, if you prefer a bit more crunch add straight to the potato

Mix well and add two egg yolks to the potato mixture

Add the flour to the potato mixture
