"This is a recipe from my father-in-law who taught it to me to feed his son when they visited from Minnesota. I think it's German or Norwegian in origin. I often make this with thin pork chops or side pork. Add green beans and/or applesauce for sides."
Mix potatoes, flour, and salt together in a bowl; add egg and mix well.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Spoon batter into skillet, spreading to form two to three 6- to 8-inch pancakes. Reduce heat to medium and fry until golden and crisp, about 3 minutes per side.
I know most potato pancakes covered with powdered sugar or jellies are just leftover mashed potatoes flattened and fried. But here we start with fresh raw potatoes and grate them on the fine side of your grater.
