- 1 small onion
- 1 pound potatoes
- 1 Medium-sized egg
- 3 tbsp flour
- 1 pinch pepper
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 oil (for frying)
Grate the potatoes and onions. You can do this with a box grater or a food processor.
Beat the egg in a bowl. Mix together the grated onions, potatoes, flour, pepper, and salt.
On medium heat, heat the oil in a large pan.
Pour the mixture into the hot oil using a 1/4-cup measuring cup. Make the mixture into the shape of a pie.
Fry the pie for 3 minutes on each side, or until it is golden brown.
Repeat with the rest of the mixture, if necessary adding more oil.
You can put your favorite topping on hot German potato pancakes, like sour cream or apple sauce.
