Potato Pancakes

There are many versions of Potato Pancakes, but I think that mine is especially tasty. Make the batter just before you plan to cook the pancakes because if you let the batter sit then it will turn brown. Serve with applesauce.


2 Pounds Peeled Potatoes

1 Cup Unbleached Flour

2 Large Eggs

1/3 Cup Thinly Sliced Green Onions

2 Teaspoons Minced Garlic

1 Teaspoon Salt

½ Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

Vegetable Oil For Frying

Applesauce For Garnish

Grate the potatoes in a large bowl. Use the medium size hole on the grater. Mix with all of the other ingredients except for the applesauce. Mix well and cover completely with plastic wrap. The pancake mixture should be used within 10 minutes after preparing. Heat a large skillet on high heat and fill with at least 1/16 inch of oil. Scoop ½ cup of the batter onto the hot skillet. Spread the mixture out so that that pancake is ¼ inch thick. Do not overcrowd the pan. Lower the heat to medium and cook until one side is crispy and brown. Flip the pancake over and brown the other side. Transfer to paper towels to absorb excess grease. Keep warm and crisp. Makes 8 Potato Pancakes.
