Potato Pancakes

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.

Makes

12 (2-inch) pancakes

We grew our own potatoes on the small farm in New Hampshire where I was raised. These pancakes are very good served with any pork dish.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups finely shredded peeled potatoes
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated onion
  • Applesauce or maple syrup, optional

Directions

  1. In a sieve or colander, drain potatoes, squeezing to remove excess liquid. Pat dry; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in eggs until blended. Add onion and reserved potatoes; toss to coat.
  3. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a preheated greased skillet. Fry in batches until lightly browned on both sides. Drain on paper towels. Serve with applesauce or syrup if desired.
