Method:

Griddle

Ingredients

6 medium
potatoes
1 large
onion
2 large
eggs
1/2 c
flour
1 tsp
salt
vegetable shortening or oil for frying

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Peel and grate potatoes into a mixing bowl. Squeeze out liquid.
2
Peel and grate onion into potatoes. Add eggs, flour, and salt and stir to make a smooth batter that will drop heavily from the spoon.
3
Put the shortening or oil in a heavy frying pan using enough to cover the pancakes amply. Drop the batter from a spoon into the hot shortening, making pancakes 3 inches in diameter. Fry over moderate heat until brown on the underside, turn to brown the other side.
4
Lift out and drain off excess fat on paper towel. Pancakes fried in deep fat should be puffed and crisp.
5
These pancakes may also be baked in a shallow baking pan for 45 minutes at 350°F until nicely browned. Cut into squares and serve hot. They may also be put into a well greased small muffin pan and baked 45 minutes at 350F.
