These savory potato pancakes are crispy, buttery, and completely addictive.
Serves: 5 pancakes
  • 2 yukon gold potatoes
  • ΒΌ of a yellow or white onion
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Salt, to taste
  1. Grate potatoes on a box grater, followed by the onion. In a medium bowl, mix with the egg, flour, and salt.
  2. Heat a tablespoon of butter in a frying pan. If using a large pan, place two or three spoonfuls of the potato mixture in the pan and press them down so that they form half-inch thick circles (or ovals). If using a small pan, do one pancake at a time.
  3. Cook until the bottom is browned and crispy, about three minutes. Flip over and cook the other side, about two minutes more. Place on a paper towel to drain, and repeat with the rest of the batter. Serve with sour cream, applesauce, or as the original recipe suggests, more butter.
