Potato Fritters

I can remember mum making these for us and as they were such a family favourite, I want to share them with you. For some reason, mum called them Mock Kingfish and I still have no idea why they were called this. They are just so simple to make and with only 2 ingredients in them, also very economical. Kids especially, as well as the adults will love them, so try them and see for yourself. I have made them with a little chopped onion and bacon on ocassions and they also go down really well.


4 large eggs
4 - 5 large potatoes - grated
sea salt and black pepper to taste


Beat 1 egg until frothy then add one of the grated potatoes and a little salt and pepper. In a very large frypan or flat griddle, melt some butter and when very hot add heaped tablespoons of mixture onto it. Cook for approx 4 minutes then turn over and do the other side. When you are sure that the potato is cooked through, remove and continue beating 1 egg at a time and 1 grated potato and repeat process until all used up. The reason for doing it this way is to stop the egg mix going flat from the starch from the potatoes. They will also rise a lot better by making this way. These are best served hot with tomato sauce (ketchup). Make sure that you cook heaps of them as they will disappear as soon as you slide them off the hotplate.
