This is a quick lunch, dinner or just an appetizer. Eaten with apple sauce, sour cream or anything you desire.
4 large potatoes
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp flour
2 cups vegetable oil for frying
Grate potatoes (finely) with onion into a large bowl. Drain off any excess liquid, or squeeze in a cotton towel.
Mix in egg, salt, and black pepper. Add enough flour to make mixture thick, about 2 to 4 tablespoons all together.
Warm up oven to low, about 200 degrees F (95 degrees C).
Heat about a 1/4 inch oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Drop two or three 1/4 cup mounds into hot oil, and press down to make 1/2 inch thick pancakes. Fry, turning once, until golden brown. Transfer to paper towel lined plates.
Keep warm in oven until serving time, then repeat until all the mixture is used.
