"Luxembourg potato fritters called gromperekichelcher are crispy fritters made of grated potatoes, onions, shallots, and parsley, held together with some flour and eggs. Typically these are made flat, but when no one is looking you can use a tablespoon scooper and drop them in a deep fryer. They come out delicious that way, but to be authentic, they should be formed flat like a small pancake. They make a great side-dish or snack if that's what you want."

The German hubby loved these...they are so much like the German version...the only change that I noticed was the chopping of the onion instead of grating it...I serve it with a side of applesauce for him...delicious...made for "Only the Lonely" tag game...
