Crispy Potatoes

Who doesn't love fried potatoes? This is how I make mine.

I made these last night and unfortunately they were gobbled up before I could take a picture of them...

Crispy Potato Pancakes

2 large baking potatoes
1 small onion or 1/2 large onion
1 tbl. cornstarch
2 eggs
salt and pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 stalk green onions (optional)
canola oil

Wash and peel potatoes. Place in a pot and cover with SALTED cold water. Bring to a boil and cook until fork tender. Remove immediately and place on paper towels or on a board to drain.

In a medium size bowl, grate the onion (large shreds) and when potatoes have cooled slightly, grate and add to the bowl. Add one egg and 1 egg white, cornstarch, and garlic powder and season to taste with salt  and pepper. Stir with a fork until well combined.

Heat 2 tbl. of oil in frying pan over medium heat (or at temperature for panfrying). Scoop potato mixture out using a tablespoon and flatten and spread slightly with back of spoon. Fry about 1 minute on each side or until golden brown and crispy. Drain on a rack or paper towels.

Garnish with chopped green onions. Enjoy!
