Step by Step Method

Step 1

Cook the potatoes in their jackets, in a pot of boiling water, until just tender. Drain and cool slightly.

Step 2

Peel potatoes, add salt and mash while warm.

Step 3

Work the flours into the mashed potatoes, a little at a time with egg whites. Knead the dough well. (You may have to use more or less flour).

Step 4

Divide dough into eight pieces and roll each piece on a lightly floured board into a thin round cake.

Step 5

Cook on both sides on a greased griddle over medium-low heat until done. Watch them closely to keep them from burning.

Step 6

Serve with toppings of your choice.


No special items needed.

I really, really loved this recipe. I had a difficult time finding rye flour so I opted to just use all purpose flour. Also, used all of the yoke rather than separated. I must say, this was a treat! - EDIT - I also added cheese. WOW!
