Classic Potato Pancakes



  • 2 ½ pounds Russet potatoes, or any starchy potato, peeled and grated very finely
  • 1 yellow onion, grated very fine
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • Oil for frying

How To Make Classic Potato Pancakes

  1. After grating the potatoes, using a towel, thoroughly wring out all the liquid from the potatoes.
  2. Place the drained potatoes into a large bowl with the grated onion, salt, eggs, and flour. Mix it thoroughly with your hands; you want it to be somewhat tacky. Add a little more flour if it is too sticky.
  3. Heat 3 tbsp oil in a skillet.
  4. Place ⅓ to ½ a cup of mixture into the hot skillet.
  5. Fry for three to five minutes on each side, until they are golden.
  6. Briefly drain on paper towels.

Serve immediately, while hot, with applesauce and a sprinkle of powdered sugar, sour cream, or even yogurt. These could also be served with meat and gravy as a side dish.
