The Healthy Chef Teresa Cutter shares her recipe for a crowd-pleasing Polish comfort food that will be lucky to make it to the table before the ‘taste testers’ get to it…


Known in Polish as placki ziemniaczane, these little bites of joy are perfect for sharing at family gatherings.

Makes 12



500g potatoes, peeled and finely grated
1 onion, peeled and finely grated
2 organic eggs
1 tablespoon potato flour
1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
extra virgin olive oil for frying




  1. Combine finely grated potato and grated onion into a bowl. Strain in a colander or sieve, squeezing out the excess liquid. You will need to weigh out 500g of squeezed potato, so the starting weight of the unpeeled, unsqueezed potatoes will be a little higher.
  2. Add the eggs, potato flour and salt, then mix through.
  3. Pan-fry the placki in a non-stick pan over a medium heat for 3 minutes each side until golden.
  4. Serve hot and enjoy.


Notes and inspiration: To make this a special breakfast or brunch, serve accompanied with organic fried or scrambled eggs.
