They are easy to make and a traditional Eastern European delicacy! You just need to get out your muffin trays and you are on your way. Grated potatoes with onion, eggs ,oil and spices are absolutely fabulous when baked in the oven at a high temperature.
With just a few simple ingredients , you have a side dish fit for a your holiday table. If you prefer to make the recipe in a 9 inch pie pan instead of a cup cake tin , that works just as well .
I taste tested the finished product on my family members, and there were no complaints!.
The Jewish New Year is in a week and half, and I will be making this recipe again for a larger crowd! We celebrate for 2 days and get together for family dinners. It is more a religious holiday than the traditional secular New Year.
I may make this recipe with variations. I can use white potatoes, sweet potatoes, or grated zucchini for variety. When I make it for company, I will probably make some sweet potato versions or I'll make a batch of each kind!
Which ever way I choose, I know it will be a welcome treat for everyone.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
3 large eggs, beaten
6 large Idaho potatoes, grated with a food processor or a spiralizer or you can use red skin potatoes
1/2 cup oil
1 large onion, grated
Salt and cracked pepper to taste
optional: 1 cup shredded cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
This is important: Grease a muffin tin generously and put it in the hot oven until ready to use***
Recipe #1 After grating the potatoes, squeeze out the liquid. Mix the potatoes, eggs, oil, onion and spices in a large mixing bowl. Divide the batter between the 12 heated and oiled muffin cups. If there is left over batter, divide it into ramekins ( I used two ramekins plus the muffin tin). Bake 1 hour until crispy on the outside and bottom.
