Few things are as delicious as freshly fried potatoes, and these little crispy shredded pancakes are just the thing for holiday entertaining. You can make them in advance and keep them warm in a low oven, but the best way is to just fry while everyone hangs around you, and let people top their own hot cakes with sour cream and salmon roe. It feels super luxurious but isn’t that hard to pull off. Trust me, after you make them once you’ll be hooked!
1 very large Russet potato (1 pound or two medium), scrubbed
1 small onion
1 large egg
¼ tablespoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
½ cup vegetable oil
Sour cream, ikura (salmon roe, optional), and chopped chives, for serving
I’d bet the ranch on these crispy babies.
Your go-to grill recipe for the summer.
French fries, who?
