MOM'S POTATO PANCAKES


What a wonderful addition to any meal.. or for that fact... a meal in itself. My family always loved this and when times were lean.. potato pancakes fit the bill!!

Ingredients:

4 medium potatoes, grated
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup all purpose flour

½ tsp. baking powder
1 medium onion, grated
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt and ½ tsp. black pepper
Vegetable oil for frying

Peel and grate potatoes and onion.. (Mom and I used to grate by hand..in fact, still do:) and mix with remaining ingredients.


Drop by tablespoons in the frying pan (in which the oil has been added) on medium high heat. Fry until nice and crispy and brown all over (careful not to burn). Place on paper towels to drain the oil....and serve immediately to reserve the crunchiness. Tastes GREAT with sour cream or onion dip.......or just PLAIN!! Your family will love them.
