I love blintzes. I usually make cheese blintzes but I decided to make an instrcutable on how to make potato blintzes for Scoochmaroo's potato challenge. This recipe is somewhat time consuming but easy to make. I hope everyone enjoys my potato blintz recipe!

Step 1: Ingredients
3-4 punds of potatoes
3 large onions
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 cup of water
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt
Sour cream (optional)
Step 2: Pancakes
To make the outside of the blintz, whisk together the eggs, milk, water, flour, and salt. Allow the batter to sit for half an hour and then lightly grease a pan. Turn a stove onto medium high and pour 1/4 of a cup of batter into the pan. Spread it around so it is the about the size of the pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side. Repeat step for the rest of the batter.
Step 3: Potatoes and Onions
Peel all of the potatoes and boil. Mash the potatoes so that there are some chunks but not many. Fill a pan half way with vegetable oil. Heat the oil and chop the onions into semi small chunks. Add the onions to the oil and fry for about 30 minutes. DRAIN THE OIL AND SAVE IT in a bowl. Mix the onions into the mashed potatoes and then add some of the oil from the onions. If you would like to, you can mix sour cream into the mixture too.
Step 4: Folding
Take 1 of the pancakes and put 2-3 tablespoon of the potatoes near the bottom. Fold it over twice and then pull in the sides then fold over 1 more time. Repeat until all of your pancakes are gone. The folding process can be hard at first so just follow the pictures of each step of the folding.
Step 5: Frying
Put a thin layer of vegetable oil on a pan and heat the oil. Place the blintzes in the oil and fry for 1-2 minutes on each side.
