  2. ok… these look great! i love technical food that doesnt use a tone of ingredients!

    would there be a way to make these stuffed?

  3. Wow! So delicious. 🙂
    Here in Germany we have a similar dish (I don't know where it's from, originally…).
    You grind potatoes, add salt and pepper. Then, for the consistancy and to make it more sticky, add one or two eggs, fry it and eat it plain or with mushed apples. 🙂 Try it Maangchi! <3
    I really enjoy your channel. Please keep up the good work.
