Ingredients:  
4 lbs. baking potatoes, peeled and chunked
1 large onion, quartered
1/2 c. all purpose flour

2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper

Directions:
In a food processor, process the potatoes and onions, in batches, until finely chopped. Empty each batch into a strainer and, using a spoon, press down on the mixture to remove as much liquid as possible. In a large bowl, combine the drained potato-onion mixture, the flour, bread crumbs, baking powder, salt, pepper, and eggs; mix well. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Using a serving spoon, spoon about 1/4 c. batter for each pancake into the hot oil, flattening into a pancake shape. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until golden on both sides. Drain on a paper towel-lined platter and serve warm.
Note: Serve with the traditional applesauce and sour cream.
