How to Make Potato Pancakes

Step-by-Step

  1. 6 medium potatoes
    1 large egg
    1/4 cup flour
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    shortening

    1. Peel the potatoes, cut them into thick slices, and add them to the food processor. Process until smooth (no lumps). Pour the potatoes into a large bowl. (If you don’t have a food processor, finely grate the potatoes in a large bowl.)

    2. Add the egg, flour, and salt and mix well.

    3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons of shortening. When the pan is just starting to smoke, add the potato batter (as shown) making 2 pancakes at a time. When the edges are nice and crispy, flip them carefully and brown on the other side. Add more shortening before you make another set of pancakes. This recipes makes about 11 pancakes. Serve immediately or keep them warm in a 200 degree F oven until the rest of the pancakes are cooked.
