German Potato Pancake Recipe (Kartoffelpuffer)


½ lb. starchy raw peeled potatoes
1 small onion
3 slices bacon
2 eggs
¼ cup flour (maybe more)
1 pinch Salt

Finely grate the potatoes.

Place the grated potatoes on a clean kitchen towel and wring them out well with the towel.
Cut the onions and bacon into small cubes.

Put all the ingredients—potatoes, onions, bacon, eggs, flour and salt—in a bowl and mix it well with your hands.

If the dough is not sticky enough, add flour.

Put a non-stick pan on medium high with a few tablespoons natural oil like corn oil.
Place 1/3 to ½ cup of the potato-mixture-dough in the pan and flatten into
pancakes with the back of a spoon.

Fry the Potato Pancakes for 3-4 minutes on both sides until they are golden brown.
Place them on a paper towel and serve them immediately while hot with applesauce.

Guten Appetit!
