HI everyone!  This week for Tasty Thursday I am sharing a recipe for Potato Pancakes.  It isn’t the most healthy  thing for you to eat but if you love all things potato as I do – you will love them!

Potato Pancakes

4 c. shredded peeled potatoes

1 egg lightly beaten

3 T. all purpose flour

1 T. grated onion

1 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

Cooking oil

Rinse potatoes in cold water; drain well. Place in a large bowl.  Add egg, flour, onion, salt and pepper. Mix well. In a skillet, heat 1/4 inch of oil over medium heat. Drop batter by 1/3 cupfuls into hot oil.  Flatten to form a pancake. Fry until golden brown; turn and brown other side. Drain on wire rack. Serve immediately.

Yield: 6 servings.
