Recipe by Chef Ronnie Fishman, words by Devon Scoble.

30 min
20 min


1 lb russet potato, scrubbed clean

2 eggs

½ cup flour (or less)

Kosher salt, to taste

Vegetable oil for frying


Grate potatoes on the largest setting of a box grater into a large mixing bowl.

Add eggs, half the flour and salt to the grated potatoes. Add additional flour until potatoes hold together- you might not need all the flour.

In a large cast-iron skillet (or other heavy-bottomed skillet), heat a half-inch of vegetable oil over medium-high heat (about 375°F).

Try to squeeze out as much moisture as you can from the potato mixture before frying (using your hands). Fry by the heaping tablespoon, four or five at a time, for about three minutes on each side (smoosh them down with the spatula a bit), or until golden brown. Add more oil as needed.

Drain on paper towels, season with salt to taste and serve immediately. Or, cook ahead and reheat in the oven when guests arrive. And don’t forget the infused apple sauce and sour cream!

Note: The recommended cannabis infusion dosage is a suggestion. Cannabis dosing can be complicated and is entirely based on your tolerance and desired potency. To learn why, read our guide to cooking with cannabis. Please proceed with caution by eating a portion and waiting an hour or two before any more. Enjoy!
