Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

5 or 6 potatoes
salt and pepper
1 egg
oil for frying
Sour cream (optional)


Peel and grate potatoes in a food processor or use a hand grater.

Place in a clean white tea towel and ring out all of the water.

Place in a bowl with 3/4 cups of flour........add more if needed, salt and pepper and egg.

Mix well

Heat oil in a non stick skillet on medium heat. Test a small amount first, so the pancakes do not sit in the oil before they start to cook.

Drop a large serving spoon size into oil. Let get golden brown before turning.

Continue cooking on other side.

Drain on a cooling rack over a cookie sheet.

Keep warm in oven or serve immediately with sour cream if you like. We like ours plain.
