Kielbasa Cabbage Stew W/ Latkes
Both of these recipes have a pretty simple ingredient list and are easy to make although they do require some chopping and shredding.
I used my Bosch shredder to shred all the potatoes and onions for the latkes and that process went pretty quickly.
2 russet potatoes -- shredded
1 sweet potato -- shredded
1/2 small onion -- shredded
1 egg. beaten
1/4 cup of flour
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients except oil in bowl. Heat 1/ 4 inch of oil in a frying pan until hot. Add dollops of potato mixture. Press down slightly with the back of spatula.
Fry until golden brown on each side. About 3 minutes.
