Time 25m

Number Of Ingredients 9

4 lbs baking potatoes, peeled and chunked
1 large onion, quartered
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup plain bread crumbs or panko crumbs
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup vegetable oil


  • 1. In a food processor, process the potatoes and onions, in batches, until finely chopped. Empty each batch into a strainer and, using a spoon, press down on the mixture to remove as much water as possible. In a large bowl, combine the drained potato-onion mixture, the flour, bread crumbs, baking powder, salt, pepper, and eggs; mix well. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Using a serving spoon, spoon about 1/4 cup batter for each pancake into the hot oil, flattening into a pancake shape. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until golden on both sides. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter and serve warm. Make these small if you want to serve them as appetizers. Serve with the traditional fixin's of applesauce and sour cream

I've been making potato pancakes for years, but this recipe is by far the best. The pancakes are light, fluffy, and perfectly seasoned.

I'm not sure what I did wrong, but my pancakes turned out really dry.

The recipe was easy to follow, but the pancakes didn't turn out as crispy as I would have liked.

Not a fan of these pancakes. They were bland and didn't have much flavor.

These pancakes were delicious! I added a bit of chopped onion and garlic to the batter for extra flavor.

Followed the recipe exactly and the pancakes came out a little too greasy for my taste.

These potato pancakes were crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, just like my grandma used to make.
