Want to bring to your attention the recipe of Lithuanian national cuisine (the book "ancient recipes and modern traditions"). It is, in fact, potato cakes, but all relish in the fact that they are still a piece of cake. Yes, and the dough is very interesting (potatoes raw, boiled + cheese). Long thought in what section to insert and decided to "potato side dish", since they are eaten as a second dish. The site has a few recipes, but we are not :-)

Step by step instruction of cooking Cepelinai
For minced meat it is necessary to boil the meat and mince. Now fry in vegetable oil with onions. I add more butter.
Clean the potatoes. Half the rules boil in lightly salted water and mash.
The second half of the potatoes (raw), you need to grate and squeeze VERY well (better to do it through gauze). Now combine the boiled potatoes and raw. Added to the same mass of cheese, eggs, a pinch of salt and flour. All mix well.
And now, when the stuffing has cooled and the dough is prepared, we will sculpt our cakes. Make from the dough pellet, the blend of meat and zasiyaet. In General, all as usual. But there is one thing. Help yourself with the flour.
Now we fry the patties until Golden color. Before putting on the pan, shake them from the torment, and will not burn.
Ready pasties put in a heatproof dish BARRELS and if your children can eat the fried onions, pour the fried onions and let stand. My girlfriend picks, so I stopped doing so (although it gives the flavor).
PS the Stuffing can be cheese: cottage cheese mixed with egg and flour.
Sour cream sauce: sauté onion, flour, butter (separately) till Golden color, Connect, add sour cream and broth. To give a little (!) simmer. Now pour this sauce cepelinai, uprite and help yourself. The sauce is very tasty, but Eseni have to fill in just sour cream.
