Simple to make potato fritters, which taste best made of new potatoes and served with cottage cheese.
It was my grandmother who made the best potato fritters. As with everything, potatoes in that time tasted better than those from now, also, home-made cottage cheese is irreplaceable.
Today I would like to share with you a recipe for the potato fritters I make at home.
Personally I like it the most when the cakes are well seasoned and crispy. This effect can be achieved by adding onion to the potato mixture. I use oil for frying and not lard to avoid the potato fritters being soaked in grease.

Potato cakes can be served with cottage cheese, cream, sugar, goulash, mushroom sauce. There are many options. For those who choose sugar, I would advise not to add neither onion nor pepper.
