I asked her how to make them. She said, "It's so EASY. There's no RECIPE." I asked her to humor me.
So you peel about four Idaho or Russet potatoes. Then you grate them on the smallest side of your grater. You aren't looking for shreds here. You want mush.
Take off any water that accumulates on the top. Just keep skimming. Then "ya throw an egg in." Add a scant half cup of flour, mix it all up, and fry in hot oil. Drain on paper towels. Ha! Who am I kidding? They don't get much time on the towels. I'm too anxious to eat them!
