Aussie Potato Pancakes

What's the big idea?

These are a sort of grated potato fritter that can be served as an accompaniement to all sorts of dishes.
A good addition to the buffet table in place of potato salad or rice, but they are definitely best served hot.

Shopping List

Here's the list of what you need:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon tomato ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely grated
  • 2 slices of ham, shredded *
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and grated
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2oz butter

What To Do

  • In a large mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, seasoning and tomato ketchup
  • Squeeze as much moisture as possible from the potato, and then mix this into the egg, along with the ham and onion
  • Heat the oil and butter in a frying pan until hot
  • Take a dessertspoonful of the mixture and drop it into the pan
  • Flatten it down with the back of the spoon to form a fritter approx 8mm thick and 75mm (3 inches) across
  • Repeat with more spoonfuls of the mixture. Cook each for 2 minutes and then turn
  • Cook for a further 3 minutes, before turning each pancake back again for a final 2 minutes cooking
  • Serve hot
* For a vegetarian version, simply omit the ham.
