potato pancakes


  • 1 pound(s) russet potatoes, peeled
  • 1 medium yellow onion, peeled and grated
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons canola oil


  1. Toss the potatoes, onions, salt, pepper, nutmeg, flour, and egg together in a large bowl.
  2. Heat 3/4 tablespoon canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Drop 3 tablespoons of the potato mixture (1 per pancake) into the pan.
  3. Flatten each pancake with a nonstick spatula. Reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook until pancakes are golden brown - about 5 minutes each side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat, using all the batter and adding additional oil as needed. Serve warm.
