This is a great side dish but it can also work as a complete meal, especially when served on a bed of greens with some applesauce or horseradish.
4 or 5 potatoes - washed and grated
1 small onion - peeled and very finely diced
1 egg - whisked
1 tablespoon flour
1 ˝ teaspoons salt
˝ teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons butter or canola oil
After you've grated your potatoes, press them in a towel and drain any excess moisture.
Mix into the potatoes the remaining ingredients, except the butter or oil. Add more flour if needed to form a batter-like consistency.
In a frying pan, heat the butter or oil. Form small patties the size of your palm and lightly fry a few minutes on each side.
