Placki (Potato Pancakes)

4 Potatoes
1 med. Onion
1/2 c. Flour

1 Egg
1/2 t. Salt
1/8 t. Pepper

Peel and rinse the potatoes. Grate potatoes and the onion with a wire grater (this gives a nicer texture than the food processors). Add the flour, egg, salt, and pepper. You want the mixture to be runny enough to flatten out on it's own when you put it in the frying pan. Fry the pancakes in some shortening until golden brown on both sides.

[NOTE: Finding a wire grater, if you don't already have one, can be something of a challenge. Try an old time hardware store. If you find them, be sure to buy more than one because they may not be available anymore when the first one breaks a wire or two.]
