La Vecina Gilma's -- LAPINGACHOS

Here is a classic Pastuso recipe that will give you a new way to prepare potatoes. As an added bonus – it is easy to make and easy to find all the ingredients.

1 pound of red potatoes, peeled and cut into large cubes
1 pound of Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into large cubes
3 Tablespoons of Lard
12 green onions, cut very finely
2 egg yolks, beaten
1 Tablespoon saffron
Salt and Pepper to taste
Oil

Step #1
Boil the potatoes and when done drain and mash.

Step #2
In a frying pan, place lard, green onions, saffron, and salt. Cook until onions are soft.

Step #3
Mix potatoes and onion mixture together and knead them together until they are well mixed. Then add eggs and mix together well.

Step #4
Make little, round, thin circles – they should look about the size and shape of a rice cake.

Step #5
Cook them in oil until they turn light brown. Drain and serve.
