Potato Pancakes

Yield 6 servings


  • 3 medium potatoes, cleaned and peeled
  • 1 tablespoon onion
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Vegetable oil

How to Make It

  1. Cut potatoes into quarters; place in a medium saucepan with water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook 10 minutes. Drain and cool.

  2. Shred potatoes, and add remaining ingredients except oil, mixing well. Drop potato mixture by heaping tablespoonfuls into 1/8 inch hot oil (375°); press into 2 1/2-inch rounds using the back of a fork. Fry until golden brown, turning once. Drain well.
