When I had 4 large organic potatoes growing sprouts I knew I needed to come up with some way to use them. I really don't cook with potatoes very much so my friend google, helped me figure out what to do.
I found Emeril's Potato Pancake recipe and after reading several reviews thought it was worth a shot. I'm not a big measurer, so I didn't follow the recipe exactly.
- 4 large potatoes (pealed)
- 1/2 large onion
- 1 egg
- handful of parsley (I grabbed a few leaves from the garden)
- 1 tbsp of flour
- 1 tbsp of italian breadcrumbs
- salt and pepper
Step 2 - squeeze excess liquid out of potato and onion mixture. I just got my hands dirty and grabbed gobs of the mixture and squeezed. There might have been a cleaner/classier way to do it, but this worked. Below is a picture of the excess liquid.
Step 3 - Mix in egg, flour, bread crumbs, parsely, salt and pepper. Mash up together - again I just used my hands.
Step 6 - Enjoy! These are fantastic with apple sauce on the side.
This recipe is not very nutritious and is kind of loaded with fat, so I decided to pair this with some healthy grilled chicken and veggies. The plain skewers are for my veggie hating husband.
