potatoes, peeled and coarsely shredded
ground nutmeg, or to taste
salt and ground black pepper to taste
These were a hit in our family. I grate the potatoes into a salad spinner full of cold water - triple rinse to remove the potato starch and spin dry. The result is beautifully crispy potatoes.
I forgot the flour so maybe my rating is not justified. My observation is that to make these crispy, we need a fair bit of oil, if we skimp on the oil, it will not be crisp.
LOVE IT!!!!!!!! One bite, and I was in heaven. Really fun and easy to make. A precaution is that when you put it on the pan, it will be very liquidy and sloppy. there will be leftover 'juice' in your bowl. Thumbs up!
Mmmmm. These were delicious. I left out the nutmeg but I added a little garlic. I also squeezed out the excess liquid from the potatoes. With the help of my food processor, this recipe was quick, easy and definitely a keeper.
These had a good flavor, but one would be in the kitchen all day following the directions as is! Instead of peeling and shredding 2 lbs of potatoes with a grater, I just used 1 2lb 4oz bag of defrosted Ora-Ida hashbrown potatoes. I used a sweet yellow onion and it was gigantic, so I just used one onion. It would have taken forever, and a lot of tears, to mince the thing so I just chopped it large and then put in my Vitamix blender on medium speed about 10-20 seconds, processing them down with the tamper. It created closer to a puree. It worked fine and at least I know the onions got cooked through. Lastly, I highly suggest using a a large plug-in griddle if making the recipe. Only 4 will fit in a standard sized pan and I found one batch takes 20 minutes. I got 14 patties, using a mashed potato scoop, and all would fit on one of those large rectangular plug in griddles at one time. That would save a full hour of cooking time.
This recipe is awesome! I made them for my family and my daughter who usually turns her nose up at potatoes took seconds. I need to read the reviews as to how to decrease the liquid. They were hard to shape into patties. But, we will be making these often!
I was looking for a different side dish, this fit the bill!! Great consistency and flavor. I will definitely make these again.
absolutely delicious and so easy!
