  • Stir together eggs, flour, onion, and salt with potatoes in the bowl.

  • Warm oil in a large, heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Place large spoonfuls of potato mixture into hot oil, pressing down on them to form 1/4- to 1/2-inch-thick patties. Brown on one side; flip, then brown on the other side. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.
