  • 1
    1 large baking Potato
    1/4 cup grated Onion
    1 large Egg (beaten)
    1 teaspoon Flour
    Salt and Pepper
    Grate the potato on the large holes of a box grater over a colander. Do the same with the onion directly into the colander. You need only give the onion a few swipes on the grater. Press out liquid, and then transfer to bowl. Add some of the beaten egg to moisten it – the whole egg is not necessary. Add a heaping teaspoon flour, salt, and a few turns of freshly ground black pepper. Combine.  
  • 2
    Canola Oil (for frying)
    Heat 1” of oil in a large frying pan. Oil is hot enough if a sliver of grated potato sizzles.  Fry by teaspoons pressing out excess liquid before placing in the oil.  Fry on both sides until a deep golden brown.
  • 3
    Sour Cream (for serving) 
    Caviar (for serving)
    Top with sour cream and caviar or any other topping, such as chutney, or applesauce, and serve as an hors d’oeuvre or appetizer.
