These are thin, crispy, fried potato pancakes. They are delicious!! This recipe has been passed down generations in my Polish family. Platski are very easy to make and taste fabulous. But I must warn you: these are very addictive!!

This recipe is great. Placki (that's the correct spelling) are very popular in Poland. They are quick to make and delicious. They do have a specific texture but if you're open for a different cusine (that's the purpose afterall) then you'll love them!!! Read More

1st recipe I found for Platski. My mom used to make them all the time and I haven't had any since she passed on. They bring back fond memories and this recipe for Platski is a keeper. Thank you Holley. Note for Dorothy June try it again. Read More

Good-took a few tries to get the hang of it. Using a non-stick pan definetly helps. Next time I'll add chives and maybe sour cream. Read More

My Polish Mom served these to us for lunch. She did not put onion powder or garlic or paprika. The way we ate these was with sugar sprinkled on then we rolled them up. What a great lunch snack. Read More
