What You'll Need
- 1 (20-ounce) bag refrigerated shredded potatoes
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1 egg, beaten
- 3/4 cup all-purpose 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 out about a heaping 1/4 cup of potato mixture and form it into a patty. (Yes, it’s ok to use your hands for this.) Continue to form patties with remaining potato mixture.
- In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil until hot, but not smoking. In batches, place potato pancakes into oil and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side or until golden on both sides. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter; serve warm.
Test Kitchen Tips
- If you prefer to shred fresh potatoes, you’ll need about 3-1/2 cups. You may have to add a bit more or less flour to the mixture based on the moisture content of your potatoes. We suggest cooking one pancake and tasting it to make sure the mixture is perfect before cooking them all. If it’s too thick, add a tablespoon or so of water, too thin, add more flour.
- Serve these piping hot with sour cream or applesauce. If you'd like to be a super kitchen hero, you can easily make our Chunky Applesauce!
