Potato Pancakes

2 baking potatoes

1⁄2 - 1 onion

1 egg

1⁄2 cup Bisquick or flour (Bisquick is less likely to be lumpy)

1⁄2 cup milk or half & half

salt & pepper

peanut oil

Grate potatoes and onion (medium). You don’t have to peel the potatoes.

In another bowl, combine lightly beaten egg, milk or half and half, flour or Bisquick, salt and pepper.

Add to potatoes and drop by large spoonfuls into frying pan with about an eighth to a quarter inch of hot oil. Flatten pancakes out so the middle has a chance to get done.

Keep heat on medium to medium high, but watch that they don’t burn before the centers are done. It should take a while, maybe 8 - 10 minutes per side.
