Recipe

Potato Pancakes can be combined with other ingredients, and may be served as hors d’oeuvres or appetizers, at brunch, lunch, or dinner; in fact, there’s no time when a Potato Pancake isn’t welcome. Potato Pancakes may also be served with smoked salmon, grilled fish, and squab.

Yield: About 8 to 10 pancakes

Ingredients

  • 2 large baking potatoes, peeled
  • 3 shallots, peeled
  • 1 egg
  • Coarse or kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Clarified Butter or olive oil for sautéing

Directions

Combine potatoes, shallots, and egg in a food processor and grate.

Spoon grated-potato mixture into a bowl and add salt and pepper. Heat Clarified Butter or olive oil in a large sauté pan, preferably with a nonstick surface.

Spoon 2 or more tablespoons of potato mixture into pan for each pancake. The thickness and diameter of the pancakes will depend on how they are to be used. Cook pancakes until golden brown, turning frequently.

Notes

The starch in the potatoes holds the pancake together. I make pancakes fairly thick when they’re used as a base for fried eggs, grilled fish, or barbecued breast of squab. When pancakes are more than a quarter of an inch thick, they’re transferred from the sauté pan to a baking sheet and baked in a 325° oven for five to ten minutes.
