Category: Potatoes

 Ingredients List

  • 6 Medium potatoes
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 c Flour
  • 1 ts Salt
  • Vegetable shortening or
  • Oil for frying


Pare and grate potatoes into a mixing bowl. Squeeze out liquid. Peel and
grate onion into potatoes. Add eggs, flour, and salt and stir to make a
smooth batter that will drop heavily from the spoon. Heap the shortening in
a heavy frying pan using enough to cover the pancakes amply. Drop the
batter from a spoon into the hot shortening, making pancakes 3 inches in
diameter. Fry over moderate heat until brown on the underside, turn to
brown. Life out and drain off excess fat on paper towel. Pancakes fried in
deep fat should be puffed and crisp. These pancakes may also be baked in a
shallow baking pan for 45 minutes at 350F until nicely browned. Cut into
squares and serve hot. They may also be put into a well greased small
muffin pan and baked 45 minutes at 350F.
