Potato Pancakes

a bit different but tasty pancake. Found this in a Bed and Breakfast cookbook that sister and I have traded back and forth for several years.

I am giving you this recipe from memory because I'll be darned if I can find the actual cookbook.

5 medium potatoes to end up with approx.
1 1/2 cup shredded
1 bunch green onions cut small include some of the green
1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 large eggs
salt & pepper to taste
canola oil for frying

Sometimes I cheat and use a package of already shredded potatoes. Don't judge me I live in an RV and space is valuable lol!! Whichever potato you use be sure to squeeze the moisture out of them. Try two clean dish towels that usually works well for me.

In a large bowl mix together all of the above ingredients except the oil, put some oil in the frying pan heat to a medium high. While you are frying up the pancakes keep a piece of plastic wrap over the mixture sometimes it will discolor if you don't.

Make a patty, put the mixture in a medium hot pan, let set for a minute but don't let burn. Serve the pancakes as you make them because they do not hold well in a warmer.

Very nice. The reason you can't find the cookbook is you gave it back to me. I looked up the recipe and it's close. They added some fresh nutmeg and grated onion. I like your green onion because it looks better.

Cooks Hint: If you soak the grated potatoes in water then rinse them, the will be crispier due to the loss of starch. But make sure you dry them! I love potatoes!!
