Remembering Our Danube Swabian Ancestors

Grumbeerekiechle (Groomm-bay-reh-keech-leh) –Potato Pancakes

by Nick Tullius, 2 Jul 2012

Comment:  The cakes should be eaten while crispy.  They can be served as an accompaniment to all sorts of dishes such grilled beef, lamb, etc.  A green salad would make a nice touch to the meal.

  • 1 kg (approximately 2¼ pounds) of potatoes

  • 1 nice onion

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 water glass of oil

  • parsley, chopped

  • salt

  • pepper

  • nutmeg

Grate the washed and peeled potatoes on a not-too-fine grater; drain and press the liquid out of them.

Mix the grated potatoes with 2 eggs, the finely chopped parsley and onions; season and stir the mixture.

Form patties with a tablespoon and slide them into a pan containing hot oil. Hold them down with the spoon while browning them on both sides.
