Simple Shredded Potato Pancakes
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
3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup vegetable oil
What To Do:
1. In a large bowl, combine potatoes, onion, and egg; mix well. Add flour, salt, and pepper; mix until well combined.
2. Measure about 1/4 cup potato mixture for each pancake and form into pancake shape.
3. 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.
