Men meg esn, ober nit fresn
Bernstein, 2699, p.192
  • 5 medium potatoes 
  • 4 eggs 
  • parsley, dill, spices, salt, and  pepper  to taste
  • 1/4 cup matzo meal 
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil or shmalts (chicken fat)
  • 1 onions 
Melt the chicken fat on the bottom of a non-stick frying pan. Place the chopped onion in the pan and fry until golden. Alternatively, sauté onions in vegetable oil until lightly browned. Grate the potatoes into a bowl. Add the eggs, sautéed onions, finely chopped parsley and dill, spices, salt and pepper; stir well. Add enough matzo meal to absorb most of the liquid. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a glass baking pan well, and pour mixture into it. Bake until golden brown and crispy.
