Every time my dad goes to Chicago to visit his family he always comes home with Kielbasa Czosnkowa Sausage (Polish Sausage). This sausage has always been such a treat to me. I decided to barbeque one link and serve it with some tasty potato pancakes (Latkes). These Latkes are so nice because they can be made in advance and reheated in the oven. They make a great appetizer or a side dish to so many meals. Enjoy!
- 2 large Russet potato, peeled
- 1 large, or two small onions, chopped
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
- 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
Grate potatoes and place them in a dish cloth or some cheese cloth. Squeeze all the moisture out of the potatoes over the sink.
Put grated potatoes in a bowl along with the egg, onion, garlic, flour, salt and pepper.
Heat a skillet with the vegetable oil over medium heat. While the skillet heats up make your Latkes. You can use a ice cream scoop to get uniform style pancakes or just eyeball it, should make 8-10 pancakes.
Fry Latkes for about 4 minutes aside till they are golden brown.
This can be done in batches and stored in a warm oven before serving.
