Polish Potato Pancakes Recipe
6 to 8 medium peeled and finely grated potatoes
1 small finely grated onion (optional)
2 large eggs
Salt and pepper
About 1/4 to 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Mix potatoes, onion, eggs, and salt and pepper. Add enough flour to bind the mixture together but leaving it still somewhat thin.
In a large, heavy skillet set over medium-high heat, add enough vegetable oil to come to a depth of 1/4 inch. Heat until hot, but not smoking.
Drop tablespoonfuls of potato mixture into skillet and spread out to a 3 to 4 inch circle, about 1/4-inch thick. Fry until golden brown on the bottom (don’t turn until the pancake is brown or it will stick), about 3 to 5 minutes, reducing the heat to medium, if needed, to prevent burning.
Turn the pancake and fry the other side 3 to 5 minutes or until golden brown and crisp.
