Potato-Chive Cakes

Photo by: Joseph De Leo

These delicious and crispy little pancakes can be cooked several hours in advance and rewarmed just before serving.

Yield: Makes 8 to 10 small cakes

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 large baking potato
  • ¼ cup grated onion
  • ¼ cup finely chopped fresh chives
  • 1 large egg yolk, lightly beaten
  • ½ teaspoon white pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Peanut oil

Directions

Peel and coarsely grate or shred the potato. Combine with all the remaining ingredients except the peanut oil. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet or on a griddle over medium-high heat. Add 1 heaping tablespoon potato mixture to the skillet or griddle. Flatten slightly and fry 1½ to 3 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned. As you fry the cakes, add additional oil as necessary. Place on paper towels to absorb the oil before serving. Serve immediately.
