Easy Potato Pancakes

The traditional Irish dish, Boxty, combines already-cooked mashed potatoes with uncooked shredded potatoes. Our Easy Potato Pancakes omits the mashed potatoes—with delicious results.

1 large potato, shredded
1 egg
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon grated onion
1 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Mix together shredded potato, egg, flour, onion, and salt.
Heat the oil in a medium-sized heavy-bottom skillet on your stovetop over medium-high heat until hot. Place spoonfuls of potato mixture onto the hot oil, pressing down. Brown on one side, then turn and brown on the other. Let pancakes drain on paper towels. They taste best when served hot.

You can serve the pancakes with applesauce, sour cream, ketchup, or horseradish sauce—whatever you desire.
