This is a simple dish, yet it is delicious and an excellent accompaniment for almost any meal.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 ¼ hours
Serves: 8 - 10

Ingredients
¾ cup vegetable oil
4 heaped cups potatoes (about 10)
2 eggs, beaten
2 onions
2/3 cup fine matzo meal (or flour)
Salt & pepper

Method
  • Preheat the oven to 190°/170° fan forced.

  • Process or grate the potatoes and onions together.

  • Put them in a tea towel and squeeze out as much moisture as you can - you will probably need two tea towels to do this.


  • Put the oil in an ovenproof baking dish, and leave there till it is very hot - about 10 minutes.

  • Put the potato mixture into a large bowl, and add the eggs, matzo meal, and mix well.

  • Add salt and pepper - this recipe NEEDS salt so do not skimp on this!

  • Remove the HOT baking dish, taking care not to burn yourself.

  • Spoon the mixture into the hot oil and spread it to cover the base. (The hot oil ensures the base will also get browned)


  • Bake for about 1 hour 20 minutes or until it is golden brown.


  • Allow to cool, drain on paper towel, and cut into squares.

  • Reheat in the oven until it is piping hot, brown and sizzling.

  • Serve - delicious as an accompaniment, snack or spread with jam as a sweet! I had them with my chicken sausage rolls.
