4.  Scoop and bake 

Scoop 2 oz (~¼ cup) portions of dough onto a baking sheet and bake for 10-13 minutes at 325F (convection) or 350F (conventional). Let cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.

 INGREDIENTS

2 ½ pounds russet potatoes, peeled 

1 small yellow onion, finely grated 

¼ cup JUST Egg 

¼ cup all-purpose flour 

1 teaspoon of sea salt 

Neutral oil, for frying

DIRECTIONS 

1. Grate potatoes and onion 

Peel and grate the potatoes – either using a food processor fitted with a grater disc or just with a box grater. Grate the onion. Strain off any liquid from the potatoes and onions using a cheesecloth or clean dishcloth.  

2. Mix all ingredients 

In a large bowl, mix the grated potatoes and onions with the JUST Egg, flour, and salt. 

3. Fry the fritters 

Heat ¼- to ½-inch of oil in a deep frying pan and line a plate with paper towels. Once the oil is hot, roll ¼ cup of the fritter mixture into a ball and place it into the oil using a fish spatula or slotted spoon. Gently press down to flatten into desired fritter shape. Fry until deeply golden-brown on each side, carefully flipping to brown both sides. Transfer to the paper towel-lined plate. Serve warm.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup all-purpose flour  

2 teaspoons baking powder 

¼ teaspoon baking soda  

¼ teaspoon salt  

2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar 

2 tablespoons granulated sugar 

2 tablespoons JUST Egg 

1 teaspoon vanilla extract 

¼ cup neutral oil  

¾ - 1 cup of water, to desired consistency 

Butter or oil, for the skillet 

DIRECTIONS

1. Whisk the batter 

In a medium bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients. Make a well in the middle and add the wet ingredients. Whisk until smooth. Let the batter rest for a few minutes. 

2. Heat the skillet 

Heat a skillet (preferably non-stick or seasoned cast-iron) over medium heat and lightly coat with butter or oil. Pour in about ¼ - ½ cup batter per pancake onto the skillet, depending on the desired size. 

3. Flip the pancakes 

Once bubbles appear and spread out from the center of the pancake, flip and cook the other side for another 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a plate, and repeat with the rest of the batter, greasing the pan as necessary. Serve warm!

INGREDIENTS

1/3 cup JUST Egg 

1 ½ cups milk (we used macadamia milk) 

1 cup flour 

2 tablespoons sugar 

¼ teaspoon salt 

2 tablespoons butter, melted 

Butter or oil, for the skillet 

DIRECTIONS

1. Blend the batter

2. Heat the skillet 

Warm a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat and coat lightly with butter or oil. Pour in the desired amount of crepe batter and tilt the pan to spread it out thinly and evenly. 

3. Carefully flip 

Let the first side cook for 1-2 minutes until the sheen on top starts to set. Use a large, slender spatula to carefully flip and cook the second side for another 1 minute or so, until lightly browned in spots. Transfer to a plate and serve warm.
