Placki ziemniaczane

With natural yogurt and dill
Placki ziemniaczane ("potato pancakes") are a slightly different version of hash browns...
In Poland, placki ziemniaczane make a good, cheap and comforting meal.
Serve them with sugar, sour cream, cottage cheese or natural yogurt. Add some dill, radishes or spring onion.

Placki ziemniaczane:
6 medium potatoes, grated or cut into small pieces if using a food processor
Half onion, chopped
Salt & pepper to taste
2-3 Tbsp flour
Oil for frying

Mix all ingredients (or blend them in a food processor) and heat oil in a frying pan. Place full tablespoons of potato mixture in a pan. Flatten with spatula and fry for 3-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels, sprinkle with granulated sugar and serve warm. You can add other toppings (mentioned above) if you wish. 


  1. Hello Slywia....

    I was thinking it should be potato pancakes for supper tonight so I was looking around the internet and then I remembered reading some of your posts a while ago. I found you again and there you are with just the recipe I need :) Thanks

    1. So glad to hear it Kathy :) I craved potato pancakes couple weeks ago, so there is a recipe. Thanks for visiting my blog again!

  2. Just came across your blog and have so enjoyed reading all the recipe postings - I'm a UK born Polka both parents sadly passed away, so thank you for making me feel 'polish' again. Shame you haven't continued with your blog.

  3. Witaj Polyanya! Your feedback made me smile. I'm glad that you enjoyed reading. I have two little babies under two ;-) so you are right, I haven't continued with my blog. We have been moving a lot during this time, too. However, this blog has special place in my heart and I am planning to return to blogging. Take care :-)

  4. Hi Sylwia, I also beg for continuing - I have found the page when looking for English proverbs and as a bonus I have also Polish ones, thanks! and that Polish "hash browns" I tried for the first time at the Baltic sea some 20 yrs ago, being shocked with suger icing :) as in my country - the Czech Republic- the main taste in it is garlic!
