Here's another version of potato pancakes, this one from Poland. These are good served sweet or savoury.


Peel and grate potatoes. Add onion and salt. Let stand several minutes. Drain off excess water. Add egg yolks and flour. Mix well and fry pancakes in lightly greased pan until done.

Variation: Add 2 tablespoons snipped chives to batter.

Serve pancakes hot with sour cream, applesauce or sugar and cinnamon. Good also with meat and gravy. (Mrs. Stanley Wysocki, Brecksville.)
