Spud Pancakes

I’m not sure of the origin of the word “spud” but that was the term my father often used for potatoes. These are a lot like German Potato Pancakes.

2 pounds of spuds
2 eggs
2 tbs. flour
2 tbs. chives or onions
salt and pepper.

Soak the potatoes in cold water for 30 minutes then dry them.
Shred or grate the potatoes in a bowl. Add the eggs, flour, onions and mix together with hands. place on some waxed paper in a pancake shape.
In a frying pan melt a pat of butter and place a little oil and simmer pancakes about 5 minutes each side — should turn a light brown.
