Potato fritters

Potato fritters

I had some cold potatoes in the fridge, and no plans for lunch... So I made these fritters. Simple, and tasty - crisp and golden on the outside, soft and fluffy inside. I ate them with a few slices of bresaola and sauce remoulade, but a more typical Swedish meal would include fried bacon and lingonberry jam. (And no sage)

I made these to enjoy with Dante, and he's too young for salt. If cooking for anyone but a baby though, definitely add salt.

Potato fritters
Makes 8-10

5 large, cooked potatoes
1 egg
1 tbsp cream
2-3 tbsp all-purpose flour
Fresh sage, finely chopped (as much as you want)

Butter and oil for frying

Mash the potatoes with a fork. Mix with th egg and cream, and then flour. Finally add the sage and salt, if using.

Shape large patties, and fry in a mixture of butter and olive oil for about three minutes in each side. They should be lightly golden and crispy.

Oooh, memories...
my granny used to make these, but nobody ever asked her for the recipe. And since she died several years ago, we try to reproduce the "Kartoffelk├╝chle". I will add some nutmeg, when trying this recipe. Thank you for posting it!
