2. Combine potatoes, onion, egg, flour, salt and pepper

3. In a large heavy skillet, heat about 1/4 inch of oil. I use kitchen metallic tongs to spoon about 1/2 cup potatoes into the pan in a flat thick layer. Around 3 “potatoes pancakes” can be cooked at a time.

4. Cook until a nice brown crust forms on the bottom, then flip over and brown on the other side.

5. Serve for breakfast with eggs.
