Czech Potato Pancakes:
What's The Big Idea?
These are very popular traditional Czech pub snacks, delicious with a nice cold Czech beer!
To call them pancakes is a bit misleading - they're more like potato rosti. Whatever the name, they make great half-time snacks. Do all the prep before the game, and keep the mixture in the refrigerator
until ready to use. As soon as the ref blows the half-time whistle, dash into the kitchen and fry up a batch of these. Eat immediately - they don't keep, and aren't great cold.
All you need to add is a few bottles of Pilsner Urquell
Here's the list of what you need:
- 6 large potatoes, peeled
- 60ml of warm milk
- 3 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1 teaspoon dried marjoram
- Pinch of salt and pepper
- 100g plain flour
- 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
Option: You can add bits of fried bacon or chopped salami into the bramborak mixture if you like.
What To Do
- Grate the potatoes. Place in a bowl and pour in some warm milk
- Mix in the garlic, egg, salt, pepper and marjoram. Gradually mix in the flour
- Heat some of the oil in a non-stick frying pan, and spoon some of the mixture into the pan
- Experiment with the thickness and size of the pancakes; some people like them thin and crispy, others prefer them a bit thicker
- Fry each side of the pancake until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side
- Repeat with the remaining mixture, adding more oil to the pan if necessary
