Serves/Makes:4 entree-2x as many appetizers

4or more potatoes (2 cups (475 ml) grated)
1/2 onion, grated
2 eggs
1 tbsp (15 ml) flour
1 tsp (5 ml) salt
1/4 tsp (1 ml) pepper
2 tbsp (30 ml) parsley (optional)
1/4 tsp (1 ml) nutmeg (optional)


Mix all ingredients.
Heat frying pan (I use my iron one for this) with shortening.
It is nice to add a little bacon grease for flavor.
Drop large spoonfuls of potato mixture into the pan and brown the pancakes over medium heat.
Turn to brown on the other side.
Drain well on paper towels.
Reheat the pancakes on a large cookie sheet at 375 degrees (200 C.) until very hot.
Freeze in container (foil pie pans are ideal) between layers of saran.
Defrost then reheat as above.

I make these often times for appetizers and top them with sausages and kraut or sour cream and crumbled bacon.
