Ingredients

4
potatoes, peeled
1 small
onion
2
eggs
1/3 c
flour
1 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
salt
pinch
lemon pepper or pepper
oil

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Grate potatoes either using the largest holes on a four-sided hand grater, or the grater attachment on a food processor.
2
Place potatoes in a colander and rinse under cold water to remove the starch and be sure to allow potatoes to drain well.
3
Grate onion, removing any excess moisture by placing in colander and pressing with the back of a wooden spoon.
4
Combine potato and onion.
5
Beat eggs into mixture; stir in flour, baking powder, salt and pepper.
6
If using a food processor, combine ingredients using plastic knife attachment so potatoes remain in grated pieces.
7
Heat 1/8\" of oil in a large skillet.
8
For each pancake, drop about 2 tablespoons of batter into the oil and flatten with the back of a wooden spoon; the flatter the pancake, the crisper it will be.
9
Brown well on both sides.
10
Drain well on paper towels.
11
Keep the cooked pancakes warm in a 100 degree oven.
12
Serve with pink cinnamon applesauce (see recipe) and/or sour cream.
13
Makes about 2 dozen regular size or 5 dozen miniatures.
14
Pancakes may be made ahead of time and refrigerated between layers of waxed paper when cooled.
15
To reheat, place in a single layer on an ungreased cookie sheet.
16
Bake uncovered at 450 for 5 minutes, or until crisp and hot.
