POTATO PANCAKES & CRANBERRY SAUCE


It's so nordic, so delicious. Potato pancakes with cranberry sauce. They call them raggmunkar in swedish. Don't use new potatoes because they do not contain enough starch to hold the pancake together. Serve it with fried bacon or smoked salmon.
And nothing else matters :).

"Nothing else matters"

Potato pancakes
500g cooked potatoes
2dl milk
10g butter
salt
pepper
4 eggs

fried bacon

Cranberry sauce
225g cranberries
1 dl sugar



Mash cooked potatoes and add hot milk, butter, salt&pepper. I am usually adding some harissa aswell but this is optional and not very swedish :). Add eggs. Mix it well.
Fry little pancakes on the medium heat until light brown on the both sides.

For cranberry sauce just mash raw cranberries with sugar. It doesn't have to be more complicated than that.

Serve with bacon, cranberry sauce or smoked salmon.

Smaklig maltid!

  14. I don't think you can get much more creative than this. Your potato pancakes are just perfect. Love the crispy exterior. Cranberries? Never would have thought to have combined cranberries with any type of pancakes. Of course the addition of bacon is a must! Great stack of goodness!
