What You'll Need:
- 1 (20-ounce) bag refrigerated shredded potatoes
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 cup vegetable oil
What To Do:
In a large bowl, combine potatoes, onion, and egg; mix well. Add flour, salt, and pepper; mix until well combined.
Measure about 1/4 cup potato mixture for each pancake and form into pancake shape.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Place pancakes in hot oil and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden on both sides. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter; serve warm.
- If you prefer to shred fresh potatoes, you will need 3-1/2 cups
- Serve these piping hot with sour cream or applesauce. If you'd like to be a super kitchen hero, you can easily make your own applesauce.
- If the mixture seems too dry, just add a tablespoon of water. It should get to the correct consistency.
