  1. Prepare the Potatoes and Onions: Start by peeling the potatoes and onions. Grate the potatoes coarsely and finely chop or grate the onions. To remove excess moisture from the potatoes, squeeze them using a clean kitchen towel or paper towels.
  2. Mix Ingredients: In a large bowl, mix the grated potatoes, onions, eggs, and grated cheese. Enhance the dish with freshly chopped parsley to add a burst of freshness. Season with salt and black pepper to your liking, adjusting according to your taste preferences.
  3. Add Flour and Bread Crumbs: Sprinkle the wheat flour over the mixture to help bind the ingredients. You can also add some bread crumbs to the mix for extra texture, but save most of the bread crumbs for coating later.
  4. Shape Your Dish: Using your hands, form the mixture into patties or balls, depending on your preference. If the mixture is too wet to hold shape, you can add a bit more flour or bread crumbs to adjust.
  5. Coat in Bread Crumbs: Gently coat each patty or ball in bread crumbs. This step is optional but adds a nice crispy texture to the dish.
  6. Cook: Heat a generous amount of sunflower oil and a bit of butter (for flavor) in a frying pan over medium heat. Once hot, add your potato patties or balls. Fry until they’re golden brown and crispy on both sides. Depending on the size, this might take 3-5 minutes per side.
  7. Drain: Once cooked, transfer the patties or balls to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
  8. Serve: Serve hot, garnished with a bit more parsley. These are delicious on their own or with a side of sour cream or your favorite dipping sauce.

This dish is wonderfully flexible, allowing for various adjustments based on what you have on hand or your dietary preferences. It’s a great way to enjoy the simple, comforting flavors of potatoes and cheese, with a lovely hint of onion and parsley to round everything out. Enjoy your cooking!
