Tips for success with rag doughnuts

Before you start the recipe, there are a few things to keep in mind. Below are some tips to help you succeed with Rag Donuts:

Mash the potatoes well

It is important that you squeeze the grated potatoes as much as possible to avoid a watery solution.

Add the grated potatoes directly to the dough

If you first grate all the potatoes and then add them to the dough, it will turn gray. Grate one potato at a time, squeeze out the liquid and mix directly into the dough so that the potato/butter doesn’t darken.

Pork tenderloin or bacon

Raggamunker is traditionally served with bacon, but if you have bacon in the fridge that needs to be used, that’s fine too!

More about Rag Donuts

Raggammunkar is a classic Swedish dish made from grated potato and a mixture of milk, eggs and flour.

They are fried like little pancakes in a pan until golden brown and traditionally served with fried pork and lingonberry jam or raw lingonberries.

A fun fact about Raggmunkar is that it is a regional dish in Stergötland.

There is another type of ragmunk that is made in a slow cooker. The batter is poured into the frying pan and then pre-roasted pork is placed on top before baking in the oven.

Ragmunk in a tall pan is served with lingonberry jam or raw steamed lingonberries, sometimes with liquid cream.

A long pan, called a lufsa, has a similar ragmunk on the ground.
