Rolf's Potato Pancakes

This makes about 12 medium size potato pancakes.

3- 4 lbs of Russet potatoes
2 eggs
1 / 4 cup onion roughly chopped
3 - 4 tablespoons flour
1 -2 teaspoon salt

optional spices not used on this batch:

Start out with about 10 -12 Russet potatoes

Rolf peeled and cut the potatoes into chunks in a bowl of water. The water keeps them from going brown.

Crack 2 eggs into the blender.

Next add the onion and some of the potato chunks.

Keep a hand on top of the blender and blend it on high speed till it is pureed.
Once it is pureed you can add more potato chunks a little at a time.

When it is fully pureed then you can pour it out into a bowl.

Rolf added about 3 Tablespoons of flour. I would suggest adding one tablespoon at a time and mixing it in. You want to get a nice smooth batter but not too thick. If the first pancake you fry is too thick or too runny, add water or flour to get the consistency right.

We are ready to fry.

Heat a non stick skillet to medium heat and add about 1 / 4 cup Canola oil.
You can see that the batter is thick but pours nicely into the pan. After the first set of pancakes
you won't have to put in as much oil.

The pancakes Rolf does are oval shaped because you get more nice crisp edge to them. You can make any shape that you want.

We stacked the pancakes on a plate and kept them warm in the oven.
