oma's potato pancake recipe

4/21/16

i called my oma today to get her potato pancake recipe, and i thought i should write it down here just in case the piece of scrap paper i joted notes down on disappears ;). i first tried potato pancakes at her place this winter and fell in love. i mean what's not to like... grated potato fried with sour cream and onion. it's like all my favourite things in one. 

so here's the recipe. it's so simple and easy to make and tastes AMAZING! and i'll try to add a picture to this post soon! ps. my oma doesn't believe in measuring so the recipe is kind of in a ratio style. just go with it, it's almost impossible to mess up! 

ingredients: 

3-4 yukon gold potatoes per 1 egg 

1 apple sized vidalia onion per 3-4 potatoes 

salt 

vegetable oil for frying 

instructions: 

grate potatoes using the finest blade on a food process or grater and add to medium size bowl. add salt to the potatoes immediately to prevent browning. grate or chop the onion finely "so you can't even tell it's there" and add to bowl. whisk the egg together and add to potato and onion mix. 

heat up vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium heat. 

put potato mix in frying pan, about the same size as a pancake. fry on each side for 2-2 1/2 minutes. 

serve immediately with sour cream mixed with chopped green onion.
