2 raw potatoes
1 1/2 cup mashed potato
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
salt and pepper
1/2 cup milk, more as needed
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon oil
1 pound thick cut bacon (optional)
Peel raw potatoes and grate. Mix with the mashed potatoes.
In separate bowl mix flour, baking soda, salt and pepper. Add to potatoes and stir to combine.
Beat egg with milk and add to mixture. Stir to combine adding more milk if necessary just until batter is to the consistency where it will drop from a spoon.
Drop about 2 tablespoonfuls at a time onto a hot griddle or frying pan with the grease from cooked bacon or a combination of the butter and oil. Cook over a moderate heat for 3-4 minutes on each side.
