Eddie's Story

This recipe was given to me from my Mother. She used to make it about once a week. I think it was passed down from her mother. Try it I'm sure you'll like it.


2 1/4 lb
2 Tbsp
all purpose flour
1 tsp
sea salt
onion grated
2 Tbsp
canola oil

Directions Step-By-Step

Peel and finly grate the raw potatoes. Drain off any liquid in potatoes after grating.
Add egg, grated onion, flour and sea salt. If mixcture seem's too moist, add a little more flour.
Heat oil in a skillet. Drop 3 to 4 spoonfuls of potato mixture into skillet at a time pressing each down firmly with a spatula to firm down each pancake.
Fry on both sides until golden brown. Serve immediately with applesauce

    My mother made these from leftover mashed potatoes, too. They were soooo good! I can't seem to make them taste like hers. These sound so good, Eddie.

    I have seen my mom make this with fresh potatoes and with left over mashed potatoes. Nevertheless I can't make them like mom, they just don't taste the same.

    My aunt used to make these with mashed potatoes also. And, just like everybody else, I've never been able to recreate the taste. What was their secret? Was it just the love they put into them? :-)

    That must be it. My mother's potato pancakes were so good and I know I do the same thing. You know, somebody else's cooking is always so good.
