Here is the recipe with pictures below.
(makes about 6-7)
2 large potatoes ( I used 1 large and 1 small)
1 small onion
1/4 cup of flour (enough to thicken)
salt and pepper
oil for frying
Some recipes call for grating the onion but it's too difficult...and painful!
Grate the potatoes and try to get as much water out of them as possible. They are very watery so you will need tons of paper towels or put into a colander and squeeze out the water!
Try to work quickly as the potatoes will start to turn brown right away.
Add the egg and starting with about 1/4 cup of the flour, add enough to thicken til it just holds together but not too much. It should be light consistency, not thick. Then add salt and pepper. We like it with lots of pepper !!
on medium heat. Make them kind of thin so they cook quicker and get crunchy. They do need to cook about 5-8 minutes on each side slowly so they cook through but don't burn.
You will have to fry a batch at a time. Blot on paper towels after they come out of the skillet. After each batch you can keep them warm in the oven til they are all cooked.
That way you can eat together instead of you standing at the stove frying while everybody else gets to eat!!
