Uncooked potato(es)

1¼ pound(s), peeled and shredded

Egg white(s)

2 egg white(s)

All-purpose flour

3 tbsp(s)

Uncooked scallion(s)

2 medium, minced

Table salt

¾ tsp(s)

Vegetable oil

4 tsp(s)


  1. Soak the potatoes in cold water 30 minutes; drain and blot dry. Preheat the oven to 375° F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the potatoes, egg whites, flour, scallions and salt. Form into 12 pancakes.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat one third of the oil. Cook the pancakes, 4 at a time, until just golden, about 2 minutes on each side; transfer to a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining oil and pancakes. Bake until crisp and cooked through, 5-7 minutes.
