  • 1 large egg
  • a few tbsp of flour
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) salt
  • white pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) baking powder
  • pinch nutmeg
  • butter for frying (or oil if you want but not nearly as good)
  • Grate potatoes and drain in a sieve.
  • Combine onion and potato in a bowl. Add baking powder, egg, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Mix.
  • Add just enough flour to make a mix thick enough to hold it's shape.
  • Heat butter in a large pan over medium heat. Fry spoonfuls of batter until brown on each side. Don't crowd them.
  • Drain on papper towels.
  • (This recipe is really good with sweet potatoes, too. In that case, add 1 tbsp (15 ml) of fresh thyme)
I actually don't know how Irish this recipe is but it sure is tasty....
