Potato Pancake Ingredients

  • 4 cups of peeled and grated Russet potatoes
  • 1 sweet onion that has been peeled and grated
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 tsp black pepper

Instructions: How to Make Potato Pancakes

  1. Start by peeling and grating the onions and potatoes into a colander. Then place those grated ingredients in a nut milk bag or a tea towel and squeeze as much liquid out of them as possible. The goal is to extract the loose moisture. Then place the potatoes and onions into your large mixing bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, add your eggs, flour, salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. Mix them together with your whisk until the ingredients are completely smooth.
  3. Add your two mixing bowls together and stir until everything is evenly combined.
  4. Set your oven range to medium heat and place your non-stick pan on top of it. Add oil to your pan and wait for it to get hot.
  5. Once your oil is hot, add 1/3 cup size of your potato mixture into the oil. Make sure you leave enough space between each potato pancake. Please note that your oil should be hot enough to hear your potato pancake mixture sizzle when they touch the oil.
  6. Use your spatula to press down gently on the top of your potato stacks to form a flat pancake shape.
  7. Cook your potato pancakes in oil for about 4 minutes or until the bottom becomes golden brown. Then use your spatula to flip each pancake and flip the opposite side until it is also golden brown. Feel free to add more oil as you see necessary.
  8. Serve immediately! They are best served warm. You can either serve them plain, with salt and pepper or topped with sour cream and chives. If you need to keep several batches warm, place them on a tray in an oven set to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.
