I learned how to make this dish from a family friend's mother. It's a favorite hearty Lithuanian potato dish that's rich in tradition and taste. Make sure you have helpers while grating your potatoes so they will get done quickly and not turn brown! Sour cream is a traditional topping, but it's delicious as is. To re-heat, slice and fry in a pan with a little butter until golden brown on both sides.
