Potato Pancakes

Potato Pancakes

(2 servings)    Printable Version
  • 4 big potatoes
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 large egg - beaten
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 cups vegetable oil for frying
Finely grate potatoes with onion into a large bowl. Drain off any excess liquid.

Mix in egg, salt, and black pepper. Add enough flour to make mixture thick, about 2 to 4 tablespoons all together.

Turn oven to low, about 200 degrees F.

Heat 1/4 inch oil in the bottom of a heavy skillet over medium high heat. Drop two or three 1/4 cup mounds into hot oil, and flatten to make 1/2 inch thick pancakes. Fry, turning once, until golden brown. Transfer to paper towel lined plates to drain, and keep warm in low oven until serving time. Repeat until all potato mixture is used.

I enjoy making potato pancakes a lot. This is really awesome. For me, I added couple other ingredients also: benefiber, favorite spices, seasoning salt, and shredded cheddar cheese. That way my own potato pancakes would taste lots better. I named my own potato pancakes: JAKE THE SNAKE POTATO PANCAKES!!!
