Leak and Potato Patties
If you like leaks I insist you try this recipe. It’s absolutely delicious and a real party favorite too. This is very commonly served during the Jewish New Year. Of course at that time they do not eat bread crumbs so it’s substituted with Matza meal.
I personally just use bread crumbs and make them any time as long as I can get my hand on some leaks. I hope you try it out too.
1 Large Leak
2 Large Potatoes
1 Med Onion
1 Med garlic
1 tsp Lemon Juice
Salt (sea or regular salt will do)
1 Large Egg
1 tsp nutmeg, cumin and pepper ( about 1/4 tsp each will do )
1 tblsp. Bread crumbs
1 tbsp Parmesan (optional)
1/4 cup Cilantro chopped
Canola Oil for shallow frying.
Here’s a quick video on how I make these patties.
As you can see it’s a fairly quick and easy recipe. Also a great make ahead recipe. If you having a few guest coming over, just make the patties until just before you fry them. A few minutes before the guest arrive fry them up and serve them hot!
