Potato Patties

Patties made of fried grated uncooked potatoes are cheap and delicious food that has a long tradition in Scandinavia. With the grating dish on a food processor you grate the potatoes in no time. Serve the potato patties right from the frying pan with fried crisp bacon, coleslaw ,and of course, cranberry jam.

6 potatoes (about 500 g / 1 lb)
1 teaspoon salt
For the frying:
Butter or margarine


[1] Rinse and peel the potatoes. Great them on the rough side of the grating iron or on the grating disc on a food processor. Season with salt.

[2] Put the fat in a frying pan and let it turn brown. Fry the crated potatoes quickly so they don’t get too browned. Use about 1/2 dl / 1/4 cup for each potato pattie. Flatten the potato batter, the patties should be thin and crispy. Fry them on both sides until they have got a nice color.
