  1. Rinse shredded potatoes until water is clear, then drain and squeeze dry. Place shreds in a bowl, and mix in the onion, flour and egg until evenly distributed.
  2. Heat about 1/4 inch of oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. When oil is sizzling hot, place potatoes into the pan in a 1/2 inch thick layer. Cover the whole bottom of the pan, or make separate piles like pancakes. Cook until nicely browned on the bottom, then flip over and brown on the other side. It should take at least 5 minutes per side. If you are cooking them in one big piece, it can be cut into quarters for easier flipping.
  3. Remove from pan, and drain on paper towels. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.

Isn't it great when you can create something in the kitchen using simple ingredients. Here's a few ideas of playing around with an already excellent recipe. 1. Where the recipe calls for squeezi...

I thought it was weird that this recipe has so many different reviews, but this just wasn't good to us. I thought the flour and egg were fine (used less flour than recipe), but it was the oil. ...
