Our crispy-on-the-outside, tender-on-the-inside Old-Fashioned Potato Pancakes pair perfectly with our fork-tender Crowd Pleasing Brisket. Enjoy them at Hanukkah or anytime you need a comforting company-fancy dinner.

What You'll Need:
  • 4 Idaho baking potatoes (about 1-1/2 pounds), peeled, shredded or grated
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
What To Do:
  1. Place potatoes and onion in a strainer and press down on them with the back of a large spoon to extract excess moisture. If they’re still watery, wrap them in a clean dish towel and squeeze to extract the remaining moisture.
     
  2. Place in a large bowl and add egg; mix well. Gradually add flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper, mixing well.
     
  3. In a large skillet, heat oil, then drop 1/2 cup batter for each pancake onto the skillet, being careful not to crowd skillet. Fry pancakes 5 to 6 minutes, or until golden on both sides, turning halfway through cooking. Drain on paper towels and serve warm.
     
Note
  • If you prefer your potato pancakes really crispy, fry them until they’re flecked with brown.
  • A great pairing for Hanukkah or other special dinners is our Crowd-Pleasing Brisket. It's a guaranteed crowd-pleaser!
