1/4 C fat
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
1/2 to 1 tsp baking powder

Fry half of the onion in the fat until golden brown.

Grate potatoes and rest of onion on squared-off grater.

Mix eggs well.

Then add flour, salt, and baking powder, together.

As potatoes are shredded, add to egg mixture so they won’t turn green.

Can bake in well-greased muffin tins—takes a little less time.

May be vegetarian and/or kosher, depending what type of fat you use.
