Crispy Potato Cakes
- Preheat skillet to medium-medium high heat with 1/4 inch of oil--my stove seems to get really hot on medium heat, so thats where I kept it, but yours will probably be closer to medium high heat. In small bowl, mix grated potato, flour, and a generous amount of salt and pepper. Mix until the liquid from the potato has absorbed all the flour. Once oil is hot, drop one fourth of the mixture into the hot oil and using the back of a spoon, spread it as thin as possible. Fry the potato cake until the edges become light to medium brown in color, about 2-3 minutes for me--and just FYI the darker the crispier. Flip potato cake and cook 1 more minute. Remove from pan and place on paper towels. Blot the surface with more paper towels, if desired. Sprinkle salt onto fresh potato cakes and serve warm with desired toppings.
