  • 6 md Baking potatoes
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 c Finely grated onion
  • 1/3 c Flour
  • 1 ts Salt

mixture; with large spatula, flatten into pancake about 5-inch in diameter.
Fry over medium heat 2 minutes on each side. When golden brown on each side
& edges crispy, transfer to heated plate & keep warm in oven. Continue
making pancakes, add more fat if necessary to keep depth of 1/4 inch. Serve
as soon as possible with applesauce or ligonberry preserves.
