Why I Love This Recipe

As potatoes are shredded, add to egg mixture so they won’t turn green.

Can bake in well-greased muffin tins—takes a little less time.

May be vegetarian and/or kosher, depending what type of fat you use.

Ingredients You'll Need

6 medium sized potatoes
1 large (or 2 small) onions, cut fine
1/4 C fat
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
1/2 to 1 tsp baking powder
2 to 3 T flour, depending on whether potatoes are watery


Fry half of the onion in the fat until golden brown.

Grate potatoes and rest of onion on squared-off grater

Mix eggs well

Then add flour, salt, and baking powder, together

Then add fried onion and fat.

Bake in greased baking pan at 350 degrees until brown and crisp at sides, usually about 1 hour.
