This was excellent! ! I also used eggs instead of the substitute and grated my fresh potatoes instead of buying them already grated. My youngest son loves this dish as he is not a potato fan he ate 3 helpings! Not sure what anonymous' review was all about or why the next guy down felt the need to share that he limits his wife's food intake or WHY he would wash left over fries off...soggy mess comes to mind....anyways that being said i highly recommend this dish..just avoid slicing your thumb LOL! ! (I didn't) :(

Looks interesting... I often wind up with left-over french fries, when I take out food (I try to limit how much of these my wife and I eat at one sitting). I've been looking for ways to use them, and this recipe may be the answer... In place of the frozen grated potatoes, substitute the left-over french fries. But first, wash off as much salt as you can that clings to the fries (to prevent the dish from becoming too salty). Dry off the fries, and on a cutting board, cut them into little pieces (no more than an eighth to a quarter inch long). Then proceed with the recipe (or one of the many variations provided in the various reviews). Be careful about how much additional salt you add to the recipe, as the french fry washing process mentioned above, may not remove all the salt from the french fries...

This is like a german potato pancake (not a literal pancake). Very good. I used 3 fresh eggs instead of the Egg Beaters Original. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of dill weed and 1/2 teaspoon parsley as I have made potato pancakes from scratch before and most recipes include these two ingredients. My husband LOVED it as was actually excited that there would be leftovers the next day.

What in Spain is called a tortilla. Add some cheese and it is fast, easy, and tasty.

I was brought up in a French home and this dish was cooked a lot. My Grandmother would grate the potatoes and onion mix them well then add salt and pepper. We had a black iron skillet and she would have the oil hot and dump the mixture in and it would sizzle. when it was brown on the bottom she would take a plate and flip it onto the plate then slid the potatoes back into the hot skillet to get the top brown. It was so crunchy and so good. Served with a strip steak and salad. Then on Sunday nights with a cheese souffle and a vinaigrette bibb lettuce salad.. I can smell the kitchen now! This is a five star rating from me.
