Potato Cakes

2 lbs. russet potatoes
1 bunch green onions, chopped
2 T. parsley, chopped
salt and pepper
1/4 c. vegetable oil

Place whole unpeeled potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, then turn down heat and simmer about 15 minutes, until potatoes are partially cooked. Drain, cool for about 20 minutes and peel. Grate potatoes and mix with green onions and parsley and season with salt and pepper. Shape into a log 4 ” in diameter, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.

To serve, cut into 1/2″ slices. Heat 2 T. oil in a large frying pan on medium high heat, and fry pancakes, three at a time, until well browned on both sides and cooked through, 4-5 minutes per side. Makes 6 cakes.
