OK, here it is:

Draniki with meat (for 5 hungry non-vegetarians)

You need 15 potatoes of average size, 0,5 kg of pork (or pork/beef) minced meet, 1 egg, 2 big spoons of wheat fine flour, some baking soda, 1 bulb onion, salt, spices and slab bacon in pieces.

Process potatoes through combine-machine or use grater with small holes. Add beaten egg, salt and flour. Mix all well.

Grate the onion and add to the meat mix with salt and other spices (who likes).

Fry on hot pan using some vegetable ot corn oil and adding small pieces of pork fat (slab bacon). Put some meat inside fat potato pancake. Usually we eat draniki with fresh dill or some greens, sour-cream (smetana), but you can add ketchup or salad cream :wink:

Anyway vegetarians can simply exclude meat and add more spices

Have a nice meal this evening! :wink:

Almost without meat


Fat with bunch of meat

Our average local potato tubers weights about 100-150 g

Don't forget I'm speaking about really hungry people after a hard working day

Thanks Andrey. I'm not a vegetarian, I just remember my Grandpa making potato pancakes when I was a child and he didn't add meat. Sometimes we'd top them with a tablespoon of his homemade applesauce. I loved those potato pancakes but they kind of slipped from my mind. My Grandpa passed away 21 years ago last summer. When I saw the picture of them it reminded me of him and that basic delicious dish. Thanks again.

Wow. That dish looks wonderful. It almost looks a Peruvian dish called Papa Rellenas. I'll definitely, give your dish a try.

Default Home Body Potato Soup

Here's a couple more recipes that's really good.

--------------------
Mom's quick and easy fruit or berry cobbler

Add sugar to taste and a little water to a quart of fruit or berries
Bring to a boil and boil about five minutes
Pour berries/fruit into casserole dish then pour batter mixture into berries\fruit.
Cook at 375 until dough rises and browns about 25 minutes

Batter mixture
One egg
1 cup flour self-rising
1 cup milk
1\4 cup sugar


---------------------------------------------

The best
Smoked fish dip

1 cup dairy sour cream
1/2 cup real mayonnaise [Hellman's]
1 cup flaked smoked fish
Oily fish is best
3 tablespoons chopped green onion
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Dash garlic power

In small bowl, blend sour cream and mayonnaise,
Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and refrigerate
At least 1 hour. Serve with vegetable dippers or
Potato chips.
-----------------------------------------
----------------------
Home Body Potato Soup

Simple but very good.

In 2 quart pot add 1/2 cup each of diced onion, celery and carrot. Saute veggies in 1/4 stick butter until soft.

4 or so nice sized potatoes, peeled and chopped. Add potatoes to pot and cover with water about an inch. Bring pot to a boil, turn down to a simmer and cook about 20 minutes. Use potato masher to mash most of potatoes to consistancy you like.

Add salt [or chicken bouillion] and pepper to taste. I like it as is, but my wife likes a little milk added before serving.

I'm making this tonight - it's "soup weather" here in my neck of the woods and this sounds like it fits the bill quite nicely as something delicious to warm up with.

Thanks Earl! :wink:

I made Dranikis last night. They were very good indeed! They were very similar to how I remember my Grandpa's tater pancakes tasting. My Mom really liked them as well. We love taters anyhow, now we have a new way to use them. Thanks again.

Default One pan chicken and potatoes

This is just a really quick and easy way to fix a one pan dinner:

1. Brown several chicken thighs (I used boneless and skinless ones) in some olive oil in a large skillet.
2. When the chicken is mostly cooked through, move it over to the side and add sliced potatoes (three or four, depending on size, quartered length-wise and then sliced about an eighth inch thick).
3. Using a spatula get the potatoes well-coated with the pan oils and translucent but not cooked all the way through.
4. Add to this about 6-8 oz. of chicken broth, and, if you still have room in the skillet, add some green beans or other vegetable in one corner of the skillet.
5. Season with salt and pepper (or seasoned salt), put the lid on, and simmer for about ten minutes, more or less.

Nothing fancy here, but the potatoes are wonderful.

I didn't wanna come right out and say it, but yeah, potatoes in pan grease is out of this world.

But I did use skinless thighs, which aren't excessively fatty, and I did add olive oil, which is good for you.

I made the dish for dinner today. This time I added a little bit of onion and used fresh string beans and some yellow squash for the vegetable. A tomato and cucumber salad with Italian dressing on the side. Perfect meal for a rather crisp fall day.

Question -- is the Draniki meat pre-cooked or added raw to the potato mix as it fries?

Yummy looking photos!

I've enjoyed potato pancakes before, but not filled. I followed your instructions above, more or less, using a dozen large gold potatoes and adding mushrooms to the pork filling. They went over quite well here, though I didn't have any sour cream on hand.

I'll be experimenting more with this in the future.
