Easy Potato Pancakes

by Robert Otto
(San Antonio, TX)

This recipe has been in our family almost forever. I copied it from my mother and our kids loved them.


6 Med to Large potatoes, peeled
1 small onion
2-3 tbsp flour
2 eggs
salt/pepper to taste

Peel potatoes and cut into small cubes, cut onion into small sections.
Using a food grinder, grind the potatoes and onions and mix together. Add eggs and salt/pepper and mix well. Add enough flour to make a thin batter.
Put a small amount of oil in skillet and spoon enough potato batter into oil to make patties of desired size.
Fry until brown on each side and potatoes are cooked.
Drain on paper towels and serve.

Hi Robert,

Thanks so much for submitting your recipe. I never thought of using a food grinder to make potato pancakes. I guess that's sort of similar to the ones I make, only I use a blender.

I love how recipes like this get passed from one generation to another. How wonderful that you're passing it on to your children.
