Everyone loves potato pancakes but not the labor of the traditional recipes. With this simple potato pancake recipe, your gang can enjoy these crispy and delicious treats and you'll be the only one who knows how easy they were to make.
Makes: 12 to 14 pancakes
Cooking Time: 15 min
What You'll Need:
1 (20-ounce) bag refrigerated shredded potatoes
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 large egg
1 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.
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.
