If I had to eat only one thing for the rest of my life, it just might be this. My grandmother could make placki like no one else, but she stopped cooking years ago. I looked far and wide for a recipe that sounded like hers. Many recipes call for large shreds of potato or didn't include onion. Finally I found something I thought my work and decided to make them on Christmas morning for my family. My grandmother said it all: "Good placki!" I'm glad I can keep the tradition alive.
Step one: Peel, wash, and grate potatoes. Step two: In a large bowl mix well grated potatoes, eggs, f;our, and salt. Step three: Heat oil in a large nonstick pan. Pour 2 tablespoons of potato mixture and spread it slightly, you may fry approximately 3 pancakes at once. Fry on both sides on a medium heat. Step four: Serve with sour cream, sour cream and sugar, or sugar only. Smacznego!

Placki (Polish - Potato Pancake). I've always felt that the best potato pancakes were made from grated, not mashed, potatoes. (And grated was the way my mom made them.) Nice and crunchy on the outside.
My grandmother taught me how to make these. I have to make extra cause I find myself eating them as I'm cooking them. The key to crispy edges is to make sure you drain the excess water from the potato and onion mixture. It takes a bit of work if you are using a regular hand grater but if your food processor or blender has "grate" on it, it will go a lot faster.
