  • 2 peeled potatoes
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 beaten egg

Grate the peeled raw potatoes with a fine grater, or run twice through a food processor.

Mix the potatoes with all other ingredients, save for the oil.

Heat the oil (1/4" to 1/2") in a pan, until it is just hot enough that bubbles form around a wooden chopstick inserted. Form pancakes, fry til golden brown, turn, press flat, fry to golden brown.
