These Gromperekichelcher from Luxembourg, or potato fritters, will melt into your mouth with a flavor unlike any other!
The best crispy potato fritters are those that have been fried just enough so they’re crispy on the outside, fluffy in their centers. Luxembourg, a country holding potatoes in high esteem, has mastered the art of perfectly frying potatoes.
Gromperekichelchers are considered common street Luxembourg food, so they are easily found also at fairs and Christmas markets.
One of the most loved food in Luxembourg
This is my first time preparing a recipe from the many pages of Luxembourg cuisine. It’s easy to miss as it is such a small country, hidden right in the center of Europe. One of the monthly Eat the World challenges a few months back was to make a recipe from Luxembourg. Alas, I was too busy to participate.
But enter this month’s challenge! One of the members of our group asked if we could do a recipe swap within the group. I thought it was a great idea and the perfect way to have a “Secret Santa” event. SO we organized a draw where we each îcked the name of another member.
The challenge was to be inspired by your selected blogger’s website and recreate a past ‘Eat the World’ recipe they had posted. How fun!
So that is how I discovered this potato fritter recipe, through Sneha’s blog, Sneha’s Recipe. I was so happy to have picked her and I was genuinely surprised to see just how many times she has participated in this group. Thanks, Sneha, it really means a lot to me.

How to make the popular potatoes fritters
The creation of a potato pancake requires ingredients such as grated potatoes, flour, parsley and onions, and eggs mixed with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. They are then fried until golden brown.
There are so many ways to enjoy potato pancakes. Many people like them piping hot straight from the pan, and it is often served with applesauce or a thick cream.
It also goes great served alongside a warm bowl of soup.
